Bronze Art Blog

My blog postings usually describe my Work in Progress activities, but I will occassionally post interesting event activities or computer science items related to my website.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman in Bronze

 

Last April at the 2017 Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, someone asked if I could do a statue of Wonder Woman in bronze. In June of 2017 I found a kit for such a statue, but unfortunately it was out of production. I have just received word that I should be able to source this […]

Pirate Wench

Pirate Wench 3

 

I have essentially finished my pirate wench. I first thought to mount the piece on a light colour granite base as shown below, but on reflection I changed to a dark base. I also picked up some iron pyrite at the local gem and rock show. When sparkling, this will help enhance the piece. I […]

Pirate Wench

Pirate Wench 2

 

Well, I have the pirate wench all together. This stage, which is the soldering and fitting and cutting, is perhaps the most tedious and possibly the most dangerous work.

I began casting this Supergirl in August, 2017. I had a few issues […]

Award Statue

 

People sometimes give out awards so I wanted to make an award statue similar to those given out at the Oscars or Genies or other shows. My logo image on my business card is a nice abstract figure. To turn my logo into an award statue I had to first turn it into a 3D […]
