Bronze v Bronze Resin
Bronze sculpture involves the ‘lost wax process’ – it is highly skilled, complex, time and labour intensive, which causes bronzes to be more expensive. Unlike a bronze resin, each edition is totally unique and there is a depth of colour, which you can’t achieve in a resin, and this improves with age. They are much heavier, cold to touch and you can guarantee the sculpture will be around for numerous generations! Bronze resin sculpture is also known as ‘cold cast bronze’ – its made from a mixture of bronze powder and resin and the casting is faster and less expensive than casting in bronze. The sculpture is lighter but can break more easily (although easily repaired) and the surface will dull over the years but it can sustain being outside for long periods of time.
