Cast and paint this Halloween decoration to use as thoughtful gifts to friends, family and work colleagues. This mould casts one type of decoration, in this case, a scary black cat.
Black cats are involved in many superstitions across the world. Some places believe them as signs of good fortune and some as harbringers of doom and death. In Europe and America they were viewed with suspicion as been familiars (demonic beings) of witches, that act as spies or agents for Satan. There is a belief that if a black cat crosses your path it will bring serious bad luck that is still believed by some today. In Celtic mythology, a fairy known as the Cat Sìth takes the form of a black cat.
This mould requires our largest support boards and the decoration measures approximately 66 x 47mm and does not have identical details on both sides.
Model Metal is perfect for this mould and no venting should be required. Each piece should weigh about 27grams, so you should be able to cast 4 figures per bar (excluding ingates).
