This magnificent bronze is graceful and a pleasure to display. High quality antique patinated bronze magnificent.The process of "lost wax". What enhances bronze art beyond that of a "memory" found in a closet? There are several reasons, including the cost of bronze materials, silicone for moulds, tools, ovens, etc. The main reason is that there are very few people trained in the tedious process, practiced by ancient Greeks and Romans. Bronze sculpture is not easy to do and there is a lot of your time, difficult steps involved. In a world of hi-tech mass production, bronze cast iron remains essentially the same. Each of our real bronze castings is actually an "original" and the following explains why.
Here are the basic steps involved in the creation of a bronze sculpture medal according to the classical process "lost wax" (lost wax). Original model of the artist.
Silicone mould of the model. Create the lost wax mold. Moulding, grating and bronze file.
Assemble the parts by welding. Part mounted file and finish.
All bronze pieces are cast from a wax model regardless of the original material that the model was carved. A silicone mould is made from the artist's finished piece, and a hollow wax cast is extracted from this mould. The wax is then repaired, reworked and finished to the specifications of the sculptor. Before creating a ceramic shell (explained below), the vents are attached in the wax model. These vents are necessary in hard-to-reach areas where gas can accumulate such as hips, necks and limbs.Vents let the gas escape when the molten bronze is cast and will avoid the air pockets forming that explode the ceramic shell. The ceramic shell is one of the few materials that can withstand the heat of the molten metal. When the wax melt is hardened and the vents are in place, a ceramic shell is formed on the wax. This shell is made by dipping the wax into an aqueous solution, coating with sand, drying and repeating the process up to 14 times. A core composed of plaster, earth brick and water is poured inside the wax mould. Once the ceramic tank and core have been defined, the mould is triggered in an oven, the wax is melted and the ceramic shell is left intact. This process is known in French as lost wax (lost wax). Molten bronze is now spread in the cavity left by the melted wax. When the bronze medal is cooled, the shell is chipped away with a hammer and a chisel.
The bronze medal must now be repaired and finished. This step is called "hunting" and it is a difficult process, because metal is involved. Any imperfection such as the air pockets of the well must be brazed with bronze rod, as in welding. All ears and seams must be removed by grinding, grating and, finally, sanding. The next step is to hunt or hammer the mould vents using special tools.The natural bronze medal has a matte finish. After the finish finish, a patina is applied can be left matt of polish. Chemicals, pigments, heat, safety equipment and a lot of experience are involved. In addition, since bronze comes in a variety of alloys, patina requires different techniques and chemicals. When shopping for bronze works of art, beware of terms such as "cold cast" or "paste bronze.
