Cuttlebone Casting

I'm thinking about this. A friend has been doing some cuttlebone casting. Wouldn't this make some good components? So I have bought the largest pieces of cuttlebone I can find, and then downloaded a free tutorial here.

I have scrap silver and think this would be fun. I have also read that it really smells when you pour the molten silver, so it's a good idea to do this outside or in a very well ventilated space.
If this turns out, I'll post some pictures. Have you tried it?
