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.
