What is a Cold Cast bronze?
In overall appearance and detail there is virtually no difference between hot and cold cast bronze. A cold cast bronze is created with 80% bronze powder mixed with a polymer resin whereas the hot cast bronze is labor intensive requiring several molds, and molten metal poured in the lost wax process. A modern technique, cold castings generally sell for hundreds rather than thousands of dollars. Every piece of art is fragile and should be treated with the respect the deserve, properly displayed and kept away from curious hands.
