The finish of the sculptures can be very different, and can be the key to a greater or lesser success, since it is in the artist's hands to choose what kind of finish to pick to achieve desired and unique effect.
The technique of obtaining the dark bronze is similar to that of other colors. A patina is applied at the end of the process, achieving this extremely realistic and forceful air.
Working with dark bronze: the sculpture
Different methods are used to achieve the dark bronze, the most traditional consist of crafting a replica of the original design carved out of another material, such as wood, clay, etc., and working on that replica until obtaining the final result.
The core of work is done by the sculptor though design and crafting of this mold.
It is then covered with a layer of silicone rubber to create a rubber mold of the same object. This mold is filled with wax and allowed to cool, to obtain an exact version of the sculpture, only in wax.
The wax sculpture is then coated with a ceramic and hot steam is pressed inside to make the wax melt leaving a hollow ceramic case behind.
Flowingly, it is filled with molten bronze at 1140 degrees for a few minutes to obtain the final sculpture in exact proportion to the original design of the sculptor.
This method is more expensive for it is time and labor consuming. As result we have decided to adapt to the needs of today's customers, offering sculptures with a layer of bronze on cold smelting of copper, on the base of graphite and limestone, and with the various possible finishes. Thus making the acquiring of excellent quality pieces of art more feasible.
