Ooooh McDee- That is insane! The 5th picture in the line up-blew my mind!! You can really appreciate the beauty of the bronze in that picture. How heavy is this sculpture? When you say "braised", what does that mean?  I have an extremely heavy bronzed Ursula candelabra and it isn't as smooth as your kit looks. That's why I was wondering if there is more than one type of bronzing.  Either way, I adore this type of metal look!

It weighs in at 1.5 lbs. and braised is sort of like welding, using flame and solder...
I'm not too sure about the different types of Bronze...but I'm trying to find out all I can.
...and I feel the same way you do about  this type of metal look!
Cheers!

If you paint it I'll form a posse to find you and kick your ass.  ;D

"brazed" or "brazing" are the normal spellings. heavy compared to soldering, or light compared to welding. another "joining" process. for this "model" to look this good, looks like quite the precision job.

I'm happy for you Mcdee!  :)  You have a wonderful piece of art and I have to say- I love the way you photographed it!  The picture of the bronze against the blue sky background is stunning!!
Thanks for the info on the brazing technique- empty13. I'm pretty impressed by bronzing! I only have the one piece, but I love it to death!

McDee-
I don't want to sound un-American, but if you had it done in India or China it would be around what you paid for it.

Its kind of like manhole covers. They used to be made mostly in PA and now virtually all covers are made in India, where iron workers are barefoot with no safty equipment and such. Its a truly uneven playing field.

WOW...Those poor souls...I can't believe we support this standard of living :o
I like the statement made by Mr Modi (resident Slave Master)
At the Shakti Industries foundry, “there are no accidents, never ever. Period,” Mr. Modi said. “By God’s will, it’s all fine.”

.... What a Crock...

Well having said that ....I 'm pretty sure the Bronze FP wasn't made under these conditions (at least I hope not) If it were , there would probably be plenty of them availible, but after checking here and on other forums...no one seems to know anything about this kit or its' origin....
The quest continues...
Cheers

now u need all 12 other aurora models in bronze, to complete yer set.

Or, if you want to keep your costs down, just get a bronze copy of the companion kit, The Ghost of Castle Mare, and call it a day.
