44/100 - This bronze caster is practicing the "lost wax process" to make a statue of the Buddha at a foundry in Mandalay, Burma. It was great to witness parts of the process from start to finish at this place.
-
First, they build the general structure of beeswax using prescribed ratios and measurements, carefully building up details, like seen here. They end up with a positive of the sculpture in wax.
-
Afterwards they cover the wax positive in a plaster mold. They then take the plaster mold and put it in a fire pit, and slowly heat it by covering it with coals, and by burning dried cattle dung on top of it, which melts out all of the beeswax through a hole in the bottom of the mold.
-
Once all of the molten wax has drained out, they have a plaster mold with a perfect negative of the sculpture on the inside.
-
The bronze sculptors then bury the plaster mold in the ground, with only a small hole open to pour in a special mixture of molten bronze. (They bury it so that the molten bronze has nowhere to leak out to as the plaster is supported by surrounding earth.
-
Once the molten bronze has cooled, they remove it from the ground, and break apart the plaster to expose a bronze positive. They then chisel off any remaining plaster, and file down any pieces of bronze that do not belong, or that were supporting joints. Eventually, they polish it, ending with a perfect bronze positive of the original wax sculpture.
