Success! of a Sort.
Made a second mold, larger, with better attention paid to parting line. Was rewarded with this fine looking first pull. Not perfect, but certainly promising. Got a second one poured despite having elbow surgery yesterday. Thinking that a little more patience may be the key ingredient (always in short supply around here).
Update: Got one! Not the next one, but the one after that. Had to carve out the parting line a tiny bit, and it seems to have helped. We'll see if I can get 10 more, and then start the next plate. Qualified success!
