I took some user comments way to seriously and figured out what it would take to melt obsidian and sand cast it into a sword.

|| ABOUT ||
Today, getting what you need is as easy as a trip to the store. From food to clothing, energy, medicine, and so much more, Andy George will discover what it takes to make everything from scratch. His mission is to understand the complex processes of manufacturing that is often taken for granted and do it all himself. Each week he’s traveling the world to bypass the modern supply chain in order to harvest raw materials straight from the source. Along the way, he’s answering the questions you never thought to ask.

You're thinking too much like glass. While it is indeed a natural glass, it's not so before it is formed.
What you could try is making your own molten felsic material, pouring into a thin mold, and then trying to cool it as quickly as possible, as opposed to trying to slowly cool it in an annealing oven. I'd start with say CO2 fire extinguishers, as Mythbusters got a can of soda to "cold" in I think 3 seconds back in the day with the aid of a CO2 fire extinguisher. From there, you could try pouring liquid nitrogen on it... I would also suggest pouring BEFORE starting the rapid cooling process, as this would allow the molten material to take a shape before being introduced to the cooling process.
Sure, you wouldn't be using obsidian in a casting manner like say steel or aluminum, but you would indeed be casting what would become obsidian...
Lesson learned: A pure obsidian sword is worthless. But who says the entire thing must be obsidian? In Japanese sword making they use a variety of metals with different qualities to make their swords, Perhaps if layers of different materials were used with the obsidian on the surface would work?
There are surface of the earth lava areas, aren't there? Like where scientists do research on it. If you could gain access maybe you could cast the sword there and make a thoroughly obsidian sword. Maybe.. if it is hot enough. That would be neat
Learning how to draw cartoon animals from the farm is not such a difficult task! Weve grown up surrounded by them! Farm animals are everywhere: In blockbuster movies, childs books, greeting cards. their shapes and images are printed in our minds!
In this section, I will show you how to determine what are the physical uniqueness of each animal and how to work with them. Then, you can practice drawing each cartoon character using basic shapes.
You will have the opportunity to make nice illustrations, practice sketching and cartooning using short easy lessons and complete your creation using a drawing software to create vector art if you want to! Cartoon drawing is really fun once you get into it!
Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
