Sample text

When the cast is finished it must be patinated or polished, requiring another professional, since metal must be colored with acids. Most contemporary statues are chemically patinated in this way no matter what their color. I highly recommend that bronze casting be left to professionals. Lead casting can be accomplished by the average individual. Here is what it takes: a mold that has been properly gated and vented 33 Chapter 6: Mold Making & Casting so that any gas build up does not explode the mold when casting; hot metal plaster that can withstand the high temperature of the liquefied lead; and a black iron pot to melt the pigs of lead (this pot should be large enough to hold sufficient lead to fill the entire mold in one continuous pouring flow).

When using plaster molds for casting other plaster pieces soak and soap the mold in water and let drip dry prior to casting. Otherwise the cast will adhere to the walls of the mold and it will be close to impossible to remove it. Seal the mold and apply a release before casting. When a mold has been made and cured submerging it in water will not effect its strength or durability as you might think. Plaster can be cast into almost anything, as long as the material has been sealed and a release has been applied.

Plaster can be patinated in any number of ways, using acrylic paint, oil paint, water colors, egg wash, stain, or latex paints. Whatever you use I suggest you make sample 34 tiles or pancakes before coloring the original cast. To strengthen plaster casts an additive is used with the wet material. Usually burlap or cloth is impregnated with wet plaster and added to the interior of a cast or mold to help support the cast. This does not mean that the plaster material becomes stronger. Bone Emulsion, on the other hand, is a liquid that when added to the plaster mix makes the plaster harder.
