I Have a Bar of Tin

And it has nothing to do with World of Warcraft. The pewter that I ordered has arrived. That means I need to get the rest of my act together and do some pewter casting. I have the face shield and carving tools, but I need some plaster to make preliminary molds (I'll graduate to soapstone when I know what I'm doing.

With my keen hindsight, I realize I should probably have paid the extra to have the pewter cut into smaller pieces. Chopping up that bar (about 8 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 1 inch thick) will be problematic.
