Metal-chasing: Just as the wax copies were chased, the casting is worked until the telltale signs of the casting process are removed, so that the casting now looks like the original model. Pits left by air bubbles in the casting and the stubs of the spruing are filed down and polished.
Prior to silica-based casting moulds, these moulds were made of a variety of other fire-proof materials, the most common being plaster based, with added grout, and clay based. Prior to rubber moulds gelatine was used.
Again, there is way more to the actual process that sculptors like Tony have to endure. But the finished product is well worth the steps and makes for a very happy Tony and a very happy Client! ENJOY BUDDY HAWKINS!!1 2 3 4 5 6 7
