I started by opening the complete mold and cleaning it up. Then covered the inside with vaseline for a mold separator and then poured my first casting. I waited for awhile and then opened the mold, removed the casting, and spent about 20 minutes cleaning up the mold lines.
While I was waiting for the casting to set up, I sharpened my drawknife and then worked on a third torch.
