Question about starting casting and using kiln : Silvercasting
Be careful, there are lots of hazards to be wary of for a novice. Fumes, flame, molten metal to name a few. Just educate, prepare and protect yourself. It is deeply rewarding to do lost wax casting, I just encourage safety and education first. I had a flask break when casting gold once and it flung molten gold beads into my arm, so just have a proper setup.
