Bronze resin cast

“Cold-Casting” is a term used to describe the process of mixing metal powder with a resin to create castings that give the appearance of solid metal. The metal cold-cast process (also known as “bonded bronze”) is faster and much less expensive compared with foundry casting of molten metal (lost wax process).
