Making the Mold

  • Prepare original pick with release agent

  • Heat Shapelock

  • Heat more Shapelock and press it onto top of pick, completely covering bottom half of mold

  • After all the Shapelock is cool, pry everything apart

It should look like this

Optional followup

Optional Followup

  • Use new mold to impress clay around a metal blank (don’t forget the release agent), carve interesting shapes and bevels into it, imprint your area code, bake clay, let cool, and repeat Shapelock molding process with your new pick handle

Wiper blades and you

Wiper Blades and You

  • Use your old ones or ask at an oil/tire change place

Dremel Brand Rotary Tool

  • Get a bucket of ice water

  • Don’t plug in your Dremel without goggles on

  • Do you enjoy breathing toxic metal dust? If not, get a dust mask

  • Apply cutting wheel at right angle to metal, and cut notches in the bottom; use 8-9 on the speed dial

  • Quench often

Sanding the pick

Sanding the Pick

  • Use stone first on edges

  • Use Dremel sanding disks on flats (don’t let the metal get too hot)

  • Clamp metal in Vise Grips and start sanding by hand using 400, 600 and 1000 grits in progression

  • Electrician’s tape makes good fingertip armor

Molding the handles

Molding the Handles

  • Dump talcum powder onto both halves of mold and blow off excess

  • Work clay in pasta machine or by hand until soft

  • Roll out approximate length of handle, twice

  • Squish one into mold
