Bleigießen New Year's Eve

Bleigießen as a New Year custom

Bleigießen New Year's Eve

The lead casting is one of the most popular New Year customs of predicting the future in the new year. Indeed, but not really is the casting of lead, but Zinngießen. Lead is highly toxic and therefore unsuitable for the fun oracle. Tin, however, melts easily and is easy to edit.

The savvy handyman course, has everything it takes to lead casting, already in the house:

  • Tin, for example from the roll
  • a small burner to melt the tin
  • a melting spoon
  • a bowl of water for cooling the figures

Or you can buy one of the popular Bleigießen sets that are offered each year to New Year's Eve again anywhere. There, however, a candle flame is taken to melt in general - which takes longer.

To the lead casting, the metal is heated in a spoon over a candle or a Bunsen burner until it is liquid. The molten lead or tin is then poured into the water bowl. Because of the cold water, the metal solidifies immediately and forms interesting forms that must be interpreted by the participants of the lead casting.
