That's kool.  Looks like you changed a piece of Taffy candy into metal.  Amazing stuff, metal clay.  Another thing for me to play with some day.

Just thinking.  If you formed a mold out of something like wax or wood or plastic, couldn't you stuff the soft metal clay into it, close the two halves of the mold together, and it would be like a do it yourself casting.  Its not runny like liquid is it, i thought of it more like squishy like clay so that it could be compressed in a mold to make a shape versus traditional casting where the metal is a liquid poured into the mold.
