More on 6" X 6" bronze tiles

Unread post by Marty.Hicks » Sun Jul 20, 2014 8:47 pm

Here are some photos showing my process of casting bronze tiles from clay patterns. I make two part sand molds off of the clay, then cut in the sprues, vents, gates, and runners. The photos of the bronzes are right out of the molds after the sand is shaken off. To finish the castings I'll cut them off the gates, sandblast with glass bead, do some chiseling and chasing, apply patina, then wax.
