Preparing the Composition

Three days working at the foundry with Danny who prepares the bronze for patina. Many steps are repeated to complete a smooth finish; grinding filling, welding, sand blasting and polishing. Checking to remove all little nooks, bumps and scratches.

Spot brazed to set design

Note the shine on the butterfly, just polished and the flower sand blasted
