There is something magical about working with molten pewter, the way it glistens, and the way it shapes itself to a mold to become an object cool and smooth to the hand. I have lots to say about it, but it's not in the notebook yet. You will want to know about working safely with soapstone and with melted metal, so don't get started just yet!
