 ART FOUNDRY   

Art Foundry

Art casting is one of the first known processes in the history of working Bronze.

Casting allows you to quickly and economically obtain complicated shapes.

Our origin is linked to bronze casting using lost wax, an activity that we started independently in 2001.

From 2001 to the present we have specialized in other casting processes, such as sand casting and expanding the type of materials we currently cast: Aluminum, Brass or cast iron.

We have also developed capabilities in finishing Bronze and other metals, such as mirror polishing or a wide range of patinas in different colors.

Lost Wax Casting

01

Lost Wax

We mainly use the lost wax casting process to reproduce sculptures, reliefs and monuments in bronze.

 For medium and large sculptures we use the ceramic shell coating process. 

For small sculptures we use the “Block Mold” method, which also allows a great degree of detail with shorter production times. 

02

Finishing

The Lost Wax Casting process allows for an excellent final finish on the sculptures to be reproduced, an important added value, given that the role of a good caster is to reproduce as faithfully as possible the work of art in their hands._22200000- 0000-0000-0000-000000000222_

The lost wax casting process produces parts with a high degree of precision and detail.

03

Materials

We can cast parts from ferrous and non-ferrous materials such as bronze, aluminum, stainless steel or iron.​

04

Shapes

Sculptures can have complicated and detailed shapes, such as jewelry, dental prosthetics, all types of parts for machinery and the automotive industry and of course sculptures in bronze or aluminum with the most diverse shapes and sizes.

Sand Casting

01

Sand Casting

For simpler sculptures, without a great degree of detail, we are equipped with equipment to produce sculptures using the chemical sand process.

02

Finishing

The chemical sand casting process uses a chemical binder to unite the sand grains and form the mold and allows parts to be obtained with good dimensional accuracy and surface finish.

03

Materials

It is used to smelt various metals such as iron, steel, aluminum, copper or bronze.

The pieces can have various sizes and complex shapes.

04

Shapes

It is used for the production of automobile components, agricultural machinery, industrial equipment, decorative items, furniture and works of art, such as sculptures, busts, plaques, trophies, etc.

Silicone Molds

01

Silicone molds are essential tools in the world of sculpture and reproduction of pieces.

They allow you to create precise copies of sculptures, decorative objects and other items. Here is some information about silicone molds:

03

Silicone molds are made from a flexible and malleable material such as silicone rubber from an original sculpture in clay, plaster or another equivalent material such as plasticine.

02

Molds are used to create copies of the original wax sculptures.

04

Apart from the lost wax casting process, they are used to create decorative objects such as vases, statues, ornaments and other decorative objects.

Bronze Finish

01

After casting the Bronze, our chisels work on the Bronze (or aluminum, brass, etc.) using a series of techniques and tools.

03

The surface finish can take several forms: Patina, or leaving the color of the metal visible.

02

Imperfections and dirt are removed from the surface of the sculptures and if sculptures are cast in several parts, the welds are touched up.

04

Some customers prefer to polish the surface until it looks like a mirror.
