Lovely casts of antique bronze originals. Made from Resin, Sandable Primer, Acrylic Paint, Metallic Paint, and Clear Coat Finish. Painted to look like antiqued bronze.
I’m not a master mold maker or caster but I do try to make things look as nice as possible. As these are all handmade and painted so there will be minor imperfections. I take good closeup photos so you can see exactly what you get.

Pricing: why so expensive? Here are the steps involved in making these pieces.
It begins with a mold, that only has to be done once, but takes an initial investment in time and money. A silicone mold is made after prepping the original angels with a sealant and a release agent. Silicone parts are mixed and poured over the angels, cured, and a mold is made.
To run each angel in resin: parts A and B of Resin are individually mixed. Then both parts are thoroughly mixed together and poured into the mold. After curing a few hours, they are taken out. The angels are then sanded and any imperfections or edges are scraped away with a knife.
After this, they need a primer to have paint be able to stick to them. Putting paint directly on resin doesn’t work well. I use a quality sandable primer and let it dry. Then, I paint the front of the angels with black. After this dries, I dry brush gold on top. This technique adds dimension and contrast rather than just painting the angels a flat gold. It brings out the detail and makes them look more like bronze - the original angels’ material. After the gold dries, I spray them with a clear coat to seal in the color and protect them.
Please note that the backs are unfinished. Generally people use these to decorate things on a flat surface, so the backs are never seen :)
Silicones, resins, other molding materials and equipment are quite pricey - so these little angels, in addition to labor, cost me a lot to make. But as far as I know, I’m the only place that supplies them, and I think they’re a pretty fair price for something so rare!
