Re: Bronze Clay?

Robert - It sounds and feels just like cast bronze if its done correctly. Only difference I have had is in the look of the surface. If the sintering fails you get a ceramic feel to it. This is what has happened when I have tried to use carbon instead of gas with the bronze ice (water as binder instead of wax) method. So far only gas has resulted in the real deal for me.

Unfortunately my wife is fed up with me using gas as the protective environment in our home so I need to get a separate workshop to conduct further experiments. And using wax as a binder at home is a no-go to..

Arrow - Would be crazy if it was possible to find something that could bind the bronze as well as sinter it! Now that's some creative thinking!
