    Hi. Anyone out there have a recommendation for casting a piece of bronze molding missing from the side of a fine French clock I own. It is about 6 inches long and 1 inch wide. I have the piece from the other side to make a mold. The molding is too detailed for sand casting so I'm looking for someone to do wax or silicone casting. Any recommendation would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    You want the final product to be bronze? Or is just the shape enough?

    Hi. Doesn't have to be bronze. I can probably color it to match the original. Thanks

    You might take a look at Alumilite products. Do note though that if your pieces are mirror shapes of each other, a copy of one won't work.

    As long as you started it... And I was ready to audition.:D

    On the serious side, we've used Alumilite at work with success, but I don't have much personal experience with it.
