Enjoy the creative process of Bronze sculptures. This is a journal of my personal experience making sculptures out of bronze. Many people are unfamilar with the process, it takes many steps and man hours to create such a piece. "Did you make that with your hands?!" Yes, that was a question I was asked. Growing up in an age of non-technology had its rewards, knowing how to use your hands.

Wooden Butterful mold
Clay add to fill in the gaps
The wooden butterful is now complete, it is very smooth which isn't what I want, so I added texture to the wood. I also needed to fill in the areas which were not solid with clay. The beginning steps are involved, the process is time consuming. Best to take your time and do all the corrections in the clay because once the piece is in wax it takes more steps to correct. If one waits till the piece is created in bronze to correct errors, that could take weeks to correct.
