Making molds and casts

I’m going to do a two-part video post on making molds and casts. In the videos I’ll be casting the beaked whale tooth we collected from Carmel Church late last year. These videos should run on mobile devices including most smart phones and iPads, as well as any Quicktime or iTunes-equipped computer. (Update: the video is now on YouTube).

    awesome video! Very innovative. And why are you making this cast? Just for this video or is it for someone?

    The tooth cast is actually my overflow cast, for the extra material. I’m making another cast for archaeology, of a specimen we have on loan.

    The ziphiid tooth is a pretty unique specimen, and it may be useful to have copies to give to other researchers that are working on the group.
