This basic introduction to foundry techniques makes bronze casting quick and easy. Using soft fire brick as a mold material, you will then carve low relief into the brick using files and sandpaper. Then molten bronze will be poured into the mold, cooled, and released. Each student will create a series of bronze castings that will be assembled by MIG-welding. Patina and mounting techniques will also be covered.
