This book demystifies the bronze casting process. Follow the step by step instructions and make a small bronze object in your backyard.

The method described in this manual is called the thin ceramic shell, lost wax technique. There are many other methods to make a bronze figurine but the lost wax, thin ceramic shell method is the easiest way for the home founder to make a small sculpture to a high degree of quality at little cost and with easily found tools and materials.

This is the same method implemented by professional art foundries. We have simply scaled it down and adapted some aspects of the process to make it easy for anyone to complete successfully in a few days without any heavy equipment.

This manual is not attempting to delve into details of all the principles and all aspects of the technology. It focuses on a simple yet rewarding project that will allow the novice to cast a small piece safely, quickly, cheaply and to a high degree of quality. More advanced techniques are discussed in the second part of the book.

The manuals are valuable resources providing a real service, not a scam.
