A stunning real bronze pull handle from British Ironmongery. These beautiful pull handles are traditionally sandcast bronze, British made and individually finished by hand. They are shown here in “Tudor” bronze – this is an aged, rustic type of bronze but are also available in polished bronze (gunmetal) and also in antique polished bronze (this is similar to gunmetal, but aged prematurely win a kiln and then polished up, to bring out the “rainbow” colours in real bronze). These pull handles can also be supplied in cast brass or plate and are therefore available in many different finishes, making them perfect for recreating an accurate historical look for period property or refurbishment project.
After 4 tries I finally got this casting to work out. Sandcast sterling silver watch case. Now to cut off the sprues and start cleaning up. I'll try to leave as much of the sand cast texture as I can. #metalwork#silversmith#casting#sandcast#wristwatch
here's Arcosanti's crew pouring molten bronze into sand molds to make bells. At the end of the video you can see an example of a finished one that my mom got there in 1973. I made sure to get her another one for her collection. #bronzecasting#metalcasting#arcosanti#sandcast
