The growing popularity of bronze sculptures, handmade with all the charms of antiquity and uniqueness are durable art pieces. Different shapes both contemporary and traditional portrayal of animals, nature, and wall- art and cast bronze decorative artifacts are in demand. It is said sculpting with this metal originated in China and carried forward by Greek sculptors while the Egyptians used to make small statutes and Greeks made life like statutes, decorative art, vessels and weapons.

As an alloy of copper and tin, it is harder than copper, durable, resistant to corrosion and melts easily. Historical facts state that due to wars and intense looting from the defeated kingdoms, huge amounts of bronze statues and artifacts were taken away, melted to make arms or statues by the victorious army. The sculptures of the Greek periods are very rare as the artifacts were melted down for other purposes.

However, it has always remained the popular metal as far as decorative statutes, candle stands and sculpture are created. It may be hammered, cast and carved with equal ease while it flows uniformly into a mold when heated under optimum temperatures. The outdoor decorative statues are usually preferred to be crafted in bronze due to durability, withstand extreme temperatures and have anti rust features.

To judge the superiority of a bronze sculpture may be based on the process used to create the art work and the skill of the artist. The theme can vary from wildlife, historic scenes to simple depiction of everyday life. The flow, finish and look depend on the inherent taste and experience of the artist. Sculptures can range in size and bulk depending upon your requirements.

Bronze sculptures are often copied or cast as poor fakes, so better beware of impersonators and buy from reputed sources. There are many artists and importers of bronze carvings who are professionals in their field. With high reliability and good customer policies, internet stores selling bronze statutes and sculptures are a good way to add to your collection exquisite pieces from different parts of the world.

The work and theme on sculptures differ from artist to artist and from country to country. Each country has its own designs, traditional arts and bronze sculptures and castings vary according to regions. Collectors sculptures have a varied collection of artifacts, collected over a period of time while the Internet stores have made browsing and ordering bronze sculptures easy and fun.

076/365 – Tools for the Young Artist
removing black mold
Image by djwtwo
Just some colored pencils that were part of Thing Two’s Christmas present for Thing One this year. These came in a nice wooden carrying case, along with pastels, watercolors, and a few other tools. I had originally planned to try and take a photo of them in the case, but there are some labels on the molded tray that aren’t that attractive but which I didn’t want to remove. Opted for this instead, a simple arrangement, almost in ROY G. BIV order. They’re sitting on a piece of thin clear plastic on top of black foam core board. Light is a CFL in a reflector to camera right, a little in front of the pencils and at about the same height to get light underneath the tips for good reflections, with me holding a sheet pan as a reflector to fill in some shadows above.

Did a little tweaking in Aperture, mostly to clone out a few dust specks here and there and to reduce some slight mottling visible in the foam core board. Cropped it a hair, too.

A test piece made last year, using iron to dye the bio-paper black. the sheet was then wet-molded around a cup to dry… which required re-wetting to actually remove! now it is rock hard.

further tests will be done with this method once stronger one-time molds can be found. the shrinking of the drying paper is too strong for other temporary molds and tends to crack or shatter them.
