Bronze is a high-detail metal with a deep red color similar to rose gold. It has a subtle marbling effect, and the silvery highlights give each piece their own unique character.
Polished Bronze goes through extensive hand polishing to give it a smooth, glossy finish. It is great for miniatures, precious objects, and shiny, modern jewelry. Raw Bronze has a rustic matte look with rough surfaces. It is great for antique-looking objects, vintage and steampunk jewelry, functional parts, and jewelry prototypes.
Bronze models are fabricated using a complex five-step process. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized high-resolution 3D Printer. It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it. Once the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace, and the remaining plaster becomes the mold.
Molten bronze is poured into this mold and hardens quickly. The plaster is broken away, revealing your model. Raw Bronze is briefly tumbled. Polished Bronze is carefully cleaned and hand-polished. Please be aware that polishing can wear down very fine details and edges.
Like all bronze, our Polished and Raw offerings will tarnish over time, and may arrive with mild tarnishing. This can easily be removed with a bit of polishing.
