“Casting Drip Shot”

“Snapshot Saturday”

Molten lead drips into a copper kettle of water.

The bottom of a copper kettle is littered with fresh-made drip shot. “Lead shot with tails” are often found near hearth areas of archeological digs. (Warning: this process can be dangerous and can possibly cause serious injury. Do not attempt it without a thorough understanding of the necessary safety precautions)
