Elder Sign Derleth version by vonmeer Elder Sign Derleth version by vonmeer
The Elder Sign
This is the version used by August Derleth and Chaosium. I first took two pieces of soapstone. I then carved the image in reverse and backed it onto the other stone.

Using lead free pewter in a cast iron bullet casting ladle, I brought the unholy metal to a liquid state and poured it into the mold.

After removing it, I bathed it in some chemicals to change its color and patina.

Thank you, it's pewter...the mold I carved was soapstone. That way I can make multiple ones for my players.
