THE MAKING OF “HIGH DESERT ELK” – Part 6

Elk in raw metal.  The individual sections of the mold are painted with wax to about a 1/4 inch thickness.  The wax sections are removed from mold and invested with further shell material.  They are then placed in a kiln and the wax is melted out through drain holes creating a void.  The void is then replaced with molten bronze.  After the metal cools, the shell is hammered away and you have a piece of the puzzle.  The puzzle is welded together, the welds are chased out, and you have a bronze sculpture.
