Cold Cast Metals

Cold cast metal plaques are a cost effective but extremely realistic way of producing design in bronze, brass or pewter.

This usually involves coating the inside of a mould with finely powdered metal (bronze, brass, pewter) and then filling the mould with the resin. When cured the cast is removed from the mould and what we have is a solid resin object with a thin outer coating of metal. The piece can then be polished like a conventional metal casting.

For smaller castings, a mixture of metal powder and resin is poured into the mould, creating a cast which has metal all the way through it. This gives the cast a more realistic weight which is important for small objects, but it is more expensive to produce as it uses a lot more metal.
