Wednesday in Wyoming -- May 25, 2016

Continuing the story of bronze casting at Eagle Bronze ...

Does the pink color on the edges of this look familiar?  It should, since that's the latex mold we saw being applied in last week's post.

The next step is to create a wax mold.  That's the dark brown you're seeing here.  As was the case with the latex, multiple steps are involved.  The goal is to capture all the details of the original art work but in wax.

If this sounds complicated to you, it did to me, too.  That's one of the reasons I found the whole bronze casting process so fascinating -- the fact that there are so many different steps involved.

 I hope you'll join me as we continue the walk through Eagle Bronze's foundry next month.
