The Bronze :
The rugged and versatile bronze is the first choice of a variety of statues, ranging from wall-hangings embossing to a full-scale depiction of the real size. Artists sketch their original sculptures with wax or clay. Then use this original and create a flexible mold to capture all the details of the artist’s work. To form a wax image using a mold, then coated with a liquid refractory ceramic. After applying several times, stable type appeared, and then cured for several days.
A work piece coated with a ceramic casing is baked in a kiln that bakes the kilns and removes the wax by leaving the cavity in its place (hence named “Lost Wax“). We took the ceramic shell out of the kiln and poured the melted bronze into the mold immediately. After cooling, the image is polished and polished to produce the desired color by processing with chemicals. The patina sealed with a wax coating will be a permanent part of the engraving.
The Marble :
The marble statues of today use traditional fixtures such as hammers, mallet and chisel, although they are made in the same way for centuries. The hammer exposes the rough shape of the statue, the chisel and the mallet improve its shape, and the abrasive stone and sand paper smooths out the contours.
Finally, using tin oxide, to create a high gloss polish associated with fine marble statues. As the marble gets older, it is not as much a bronze equivalent, but becomes more durable. Keep indoors in outdoor rain or in acid rain. Marble is also prone to contamination from environmental elements such as skin oils and other liquids.
