Even wonder how bronze sculptures are made? This video shows sculptor Kevin William Fehlenberg and a partner pouring molten bronze from a large crucible into plaster molds. They created these plaster shells by dipping their wax sculptures into plaster through a process appropriately referred to as "dipping" and then fired the shells so that the wax melts out. Once the pouring process is complete and the shells cool down, they crack open the shells to release their bronze sculptures. There is a lot of cleanup that is involved before they are able to polish and display their artwork. You can see photos of the various stages of the lost wax bronze casting process by visiting Kevin William Fehlenberg's website: originalhandmadesculpture.com/bronze-sculpture.html
