Moulding & Casting Service

I offer a friendly competitively priced moulding and casting service. Working closely with the sculptor to achieve the desired finish.

Large or small sculptures, if the sculpture is to big or delicate to move then on location moulding can be arranged.

With experience gained in the theme park and special effect industry I have since had many years experience moulding and casting sculpture for myself and other artists.

If you have a mould or cast then don't hesitate to Contact me to discuss the details and get a quote. Moulding and casting a sculpture can take approximately 4-6 weeks from start to finish so please book as early as possible if your cast sculpture is needed for a particular date or exhibition.

•Moulding

Moulds are generally GRP cased -Silicone rubber moulds. These offer the best detail and strength for a number reproductions. Moulds are designed to get the best results for both resin casts and wax casts used by foundries. Other types of mould available are fibreglass, plaster, polyurethane and latex.

•Casting

Small Resin casts are made solid, larger resin cast are made hollow and backed by glassfibre. To add durability to the sculpture all casts have steel re-enforcement in the parts that need added strength.

Resin casts can be in various metal and non-metal finishes. Bronze, Red Bronze, White Bronze, Copper, Antique Marble, White Marble and others. These can then be finish in a traditional or a more contemporary patination. Casts can also be made in coloured concrete, Jesmonite and other mediums.

•Plinths and Bases

I can custom make plinths for displaying sculptures both indoor and outdoor. These can be re-enforced for heavy foundry cast bronze sculpture. All outdoor plinths are sealed for added weather protection. Design can be a modern white design or a more classical style.
