So what does Alumilite have to do with engraving

Alumilite is one of the brands of products used to make cast reproductions of engraving.
It is poured into an RTV molding made from the engraved item to cure and solidify.
It can produce an exact copy of the engraving.
Castings are wonderful tools for teaching engraving or record keeping.

I store mine and other resins, glues and other little used pasty things upside down. It seems to last longer.
