Casting Apples

This apple was cast in Aluminum using a green sand mold and the "coping out" method.  The parting line was placed at the largest diameter of the apple, about 3/4 of the way up.  The flash has not been removed yet, so the parting line is clearly visible.  The images below show the detail on the top and bottom of the casting.  A real apple is also shown for comparison (not the same apple used to make the mold)
