This work has taken a year and a half to complete. The sculpture contains over 9 kilograms of bronze and took 11 casting sessions to create all the parts necessary for the sculpture.
This piece tested the capacity limits of my torches to get enough heat to braze the sculpture together. The parts were large and a great deal of heat was necessary.
The piece was primarily cast in silicon bronze. White bronze was used for the shackles on Baphomet’s wrists and yellow brass was used for his necklace.
The sculpture was finished with a black patina for the base and a ferric nitrate brown patina for Baphomet’s body. The wings were given a cupric nitrate patina with ferric nitrate overtones.
24 kt gold plate was applied to Baphomet’s goat horns and the horns on his wings.
Lilith, the she-demon, was cast in a natural bronze of copper and tin. Her wings, boots, vest, and hat were cast in yellow brass.
