Metal casting for Father of all Monsters

How we create centrifugal metal cast pieces. Figure 1 in wax, then result in bronze. Lost wax method. The heads are part of a book art project referring to Typhon in Greek Mythology

Lost-wax casting (also called “investment casting“, “precision casting”, or cire perdue in French) is the process by which a duplicate metal sculpture (often silver, gold, brass or bronze) is cast from an original sculpture. Dependent on the sculptor’s skills, intricate works can be achieved by this method. The oldest known examples of this technique are the objects discovered in the Cave of the Treasure (Nahal Mishmar)hoard in southern Israel, and which belong to the Chalcolithic period (4500–3500 BC).
