Hot Cast Bronze Casting

This ancient process dates back many thousands of years. It involves producing a hollow wax image of the sculpture which is then coated in a thick ceramic coating which is allowed to dry thoroughly.

The wax is burned away leaving a ceramic shell into which molten bronze is poured. Once cooled, the shell is smashed away to reveal the casting which is then cleaned and patinated by heating the bronze with a blow torch and applying a variety of chemicals. This is then left to cool and wax polished.
