Processes and techniques

Process starts with a wax or plaster model, made by the artisans of the Ancient Giuseppe Di Giacomo’s foundry or directly by the artist.

This model is filled with an elastic model reproducing perfectly the artwork . It will be obtained a silicone
cast, that will be filled with liquid wax. After wax solidifying, the new model is set free from silicone.

This wax model is then covered with special plaster and putted in the oven to let the wax disappear (lost wax). It is attained a plaster negative cast where fuse bronze is putted. Solidified the bronze, plaster will be removed with all his residues.
