Though bronze is the metal of choice for fine art casting, I prefer the look and workability of stainless steel. I have created three-dimensional designs for promotional items, as well as for pet portrait commissions. I model directly in wax rather than in clay. Wax has superior release characteristics for producing quality rubber molds. Also, wax originals rarely require an armature.
