The process of Cold Cast Bronze is made by mixing bronze powder with a bonding paste and then applying it under pressure to the surface of the piece. This leaves a thin coat of bronze, which gives the piece the look and feel of a real bronze.
Unlike most of the cheaper figurines found on the market today, the Rupas bronzed range is not painted, and as a result will not fade or tarnish.
After the Cold Cast process is completed, each piece is then detailed by hand to add emphasis and contrast. There are also no visible mould joins in the Rupas range items, which one often finds on many other inferior quality figurines.
The core material of these ranges is a bonded limestone mix, which once it has been cast and cured, creates a strong and durable material similar to ceramic. In recent years no other supplier has come close to the quality and detail with which the Rupas Cold Cast Bronze pieces are made.
