Wednesday in Wyoming - June 22, 2016
Last week we saw how molten bronze was poured into the ceramic mold. Once the mold is removed, the statute is ready for the finishing touches.
If it was cast in more than one piece, which is common for large statues like this one, the pieces are welded together. Then comes the polishing stage. It's during this step that any residual ceramic is removed and that the surface is prepared for the final step.
Yes, next week is the final post about metal casting. It's also one of my favorite steps in the process. I hope you'll come back for it.
