Bronze bust

Recommended Posts

Some people who accompany me on Facebook know that I dedicate myself to other arts besides 3D, especially the sculpture ... I want to share my first commissioned work in bronze ... I did the whole process from modeling to casting.[/size]

That looks great, Marcos!

How do you get the plaster cast to come off the clay model when it has so many crevices to get caught in?

basically the process consists of 8 parts:

-modeling

-silicon molding

 

Then Lost Wax Process

 

-wax cast (a hollow piece with walls of 0,6 centimeters)

-plaster mold

-bake in the oven (800ºC) for 4 days until the wax evaporates.

-then fill in the empty spaces left by the wax in the plaster with melted bronze

-brake the plaster

-Some chemical baths to color

Fascinating! WHO is the character? WHERE will this bust be displayed? WAS this a commissioned work? HOW much did all of the materials cost, and how long did it take? Lots of questions!

 

You may have heard, here in the USA we are in a phase where our historical monuments(like this) are being toppled or hidden away because of our turbulent past. It is refreshing to see someone creating amid all the destruction.

thank you John... his name was Ulysses Serra and he was a founder of Brazilian Academy of Letters. It was my first commissioned work. Clays, silicons, casts and bronze cost US$ 1600 and all proccess was done in 3 months.

And yes I've heard about Charlottesville and Durhan... a very complicated matters.

Would that make the head 2660lbs approx? You include that snazzy cast iron stand?

Wondering if the model was hollow would have worked fine? Thinking if it was sand cast they could have made a core easy enough.
