Re: Bronze Clay?

Hey all . I am fairly new to casting, I have been paying the foundries to mold and cast my pieces up untill recently. So at the sake of sounding ignorant, has anyone tried this process? I don't understand how the binder melts out and leaves the powder solid in the same form it was before. Wouldn't the binder melt before the metal? Seems like the wax would melt way before the metal had a chance too! Would this not create a puddle of metal at the bottom? at the very least would this deform the sculpture? I am very intrested in this if it is plausable.

Thanks for any information on this,
my small and inquiring mind would like to know,
Steve Miller
