Bronze Casting!



I've been working on the mechanism for heliotropis mostly, and this week I will cast the bronze petiole plates, which will join the glass petals to the central hinge hub. The process I use is lost wax ceramic slurry- you can see all of the brown wax positives before dipping, and the chunky orange ceramic silica shell after 8 layers of dipping.
