Clay To Bronze - Special Two Videos Showing The Process

In these two videos I try to show how a clay is molded with Latex Rubber, then a wax poured from that mold is then prepared for a ceramic mold and finally the wax melted from that ceramic mold and bronze is then poured into the cavity in the ceramic mold. Making a finished bronze. Like all these pieces, these two video are the result of 5 months of photography and video. I did this to help you to understand the whole process.
It's a fascinating journey and I hope you'll enjoy this presentation.

PART 1 MAKING THE RUBBER MOLD, WAX, AND CERAMIC MOLD



PART 2 CASTING THE BRONZE. MADE FROM THE CERAMIC MOLD.
