The Lost Wax Bronze Process
All of the Nataji® bronze sculptures are produced using the lost wax method, which has been around for thousands of years. Lost wax casting is a labor-intensive procedure that can take between 8-12 weeks to produce a finished bronze sculpture. We have provided an illustrated description of this process. More >
All Nataji® Bronzes are carefully packed in custom wooden crates which are made especially for each sculpture.
Each crate is usually shipped insured using Fedex ground, we can also ship expedited on request.
We also ship Internationally. Customer pays for all freight charges and the custom crating/packing, fees which are calculated separate to the sculpture price.
A well crafted bronze sculpture will last practically forever with very little maintenance.
It is important to know, however, that because of its high copper content, bronze will naturally oxidize and the patina colors will change over time, especially if it is kept outdoors.
Natural oils from your hands, sunlight, pollution, moisture, and even time itself will cause changes in the color of the bronze.
To protect your sculpture use this simple program of regular maintenance…
1. Dust the pieces monthly with a dry cloth.
2. Every 3-6 months wax the pieces with Johnson’s Paste Wax, Renaissance Wax or a comparable carnauba wax. Rub the wax into the sculpture with a soft cloth, then let wax dry a bit before removing the wax with a soft polishing cloth.
3. If you would like the sculpture to shine, you can use a bit of coconut oil (or other natural oil) on a soft cotton cloth to wipe down the bronze and bring out the luster.
