I made these house numbers in wax doweling (freewheeling the font) during foundry lunch break today-to be cast in bronze-tapped and fixed to the house with brass pins....more details if they survive the fiery furnace.

A wonderful thing to behold. The junction points are so nice too.

Wow, that's really great. Is this a common process for doing things like this, or did you just wing it?

Thanks All

MONDO-It was the reference daddy himself who suggested I make my own numbers.

PN-junction points were fun to make-like welding in wax...it's also now my new favorite term.

NeuGrass-completely improvised with what was (thankfully) at hand at the foundry without any font reference/drawing-maybe cast letter originals are made something like this before being molded. I hope it shows in the individual numbers that they were handmade as separate objects.

Satan-once bronze they could be any color-painted/polished or patinated....thinkin matt black oxide or a wizardy roman patina.
