Description

Supergirl has been given her standard costume with a blue top and a red skirt. Her signature S logo on her chest was coloured red but the background was left in a natural bronze state to follow the trim that is typically seen. Her cape and boots were both cast in a white bronze which has had copper raised to the surface. The copper provides a natural red metallic colour when polished.

Supergirl’s body was cast in silicon bronze. Her hair has been cast in a yellow brass alloy. She has been coloured with a heat cured decorative enamel that is virtually equivalent to hard-fired enamel.

The work was mounted on a piece of amethyst geode set on a custom made dark striped marble base.

Supergirl contains over 1 kg of bronze, fully cast and assembled. Her cape alone weighs more than 360 grams.

The white bronze includes 58% copper, 1% lead and various amounts of manganese, zinc and aluminum. The silicon bronze contains 95% Cu, 4% Si, 1% Mn. The yellow brass has 63% copper, 1% lead, and various amounts of zinc and tin.
