Cold-cast Bronze or Bonded Bronze, is a less expensive way to make a sculpture. It is a mixture of polyester resin and bronze powder painted onto the surface of the statue to enable the resin to achieve the appearance of bronze. Cold-cast bronze is created by pouring the resin mixture directly into a mold. This method of creating sculptures bypasses the lengthy lost wax casting process and is, therefore, an inexpensive alternative to hot-cast bronze.
