Monumental Buffalo Update

For those following the progress of the monumental buffalo, here is an update.

Photos of:
Clay buffalo with seven coats of silicon rubber. Sprayed with a dense foam mother mold.



The mold is cut off the clay and cleaned up in preparation for the wax coating.




Next, a wax coat is applied to the mold sections.



Here’s where it gets interesting. The wax is cut into small sections and has sprues attached. These are the coated with a silica sand. It is into the silica sand investment shells that the bronze is poured.


Once the bronze is poured into the ceramic shell…it is chiseled off and ready for welding together. This photo shows hoof, beard, etc.
