Supergirl on Amythest
This is a 1:7 scale solid bronze cast statue of Supergirl mounted on an amethyst crystal found in Sidi Rohal, Morocco.
Supergirl has been given her standard costume with a blue top and a red skirt, however her blue top is slightly tinted towards a violet hue to enhance the amethyst stone. Further, her signature S logo on her chest was left in a natural bronze, rather than colored red. 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 color when polished.
Supergirl’s body was cast in silicon bronze. Her hair has been cast in a yellow brass alloy. She has been colored with a heat cured decorative enamel that is virtually equivalent to hard-fired enamel.
The work was mounted on a custom made black 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 natural bronze is 90% copper with an amount of tin and fits into the CDA#90700 category. The yellow brass has 63% copper, 1% lead, and various amounts of zinc and tin.
