Re: Bronze Clay?

Hi,
I have had several pieces "cast" using the sintered bronze process by Aesthetic Materials a "foundry" in State College Pa. I gave them a clay and they made a silicone rubber mold. A compound of wax and bronze was poured into the mold the piece was removed from the mold and "fired". The final bronze shrunk about 10% and was solid metal that could be brazed. The foundry is no longer in busniss. It was owned by a professor at Penn State who holds the patent on the process. I wish they would start up again because the pieces were great ans a fraction of a poured metat foundry.
