Choosing the Casting Material that is Best for You
Looking at the casting materials and the choice of one that will be best for you, it is quite a decision that can prove to be quite confusing as there seems to be no right or wrong in the answers to the question over which is the best. Each of the various casting materials will bring a different aesthetic feel and will be quite personal a decision to make. This post has however been done with the intent of being of some bit of help for those who are struggling to make up mind over which of the casting materials will be best for them. We will be having a particular emphasis on the three casting materials and these are real bronze, sterling silver and glass.
If your interest is in having a keepsake that displays the real likeness of all the folds, creases and lines that your baby foot or hand once hand at some point in time, one that will be an ideal reminder and a sure token for the same, then the best is to think of the three dimension baby hand or foot cast made of real bronze. By far and large, there are a host of benefits that come with bronze being the reasons why it may be a preferred choice and one is the fact that bronze is quite durable as a casting material. Given the fact that the casts so made will be items that will be quite much of an attraction to the children in the home who will want to take their time as well in the home’s gallery having an exploration of these works of art depicting their own hands, you need to use a material that gives you the peace of mind knowing that in spite of the rather reckless manner of the young ones, you will not risk the damage of your cast items even as they explore them to their heart’s satisfaction. You can then have the real bronze casts finished and personalized as you will love them to be. For the finishing and personalizing part of the bronze casts, you can either have them so done by the traditional patina, medium patina or highly polishing them.
Sterling silver is yet the other kind of cast material that you can think of using when you are looking forward to coming up with a fabulous cast of the little feet or hand of your little one. Sterling silver certainly has a kind of sparkle in it and will certainly get you a kind of cast that will be an indescribable keepsake, one you will cherish a lifetime. The qualities that silver comes with ideally make them pass for having such high sentimental and financial value.
