Lost Wax Found Bronze

Each material used in lost wax casting plays a particular role in the process. Some, like the bronze itself, have been used in their current form for thousands of years. Others, like silicone rubber, are modern refinements on more traditional materials.

Traditionally, these materials were discovered by trial and error. Today, chemists, ceramic engineers, and metallurgists all contribute to improving the technology of bronze casting.
