"Method - make a clay model which is covered with wax. All detailing is done on the wax which is covered with another layer of clay. When the outer layer dries and becomes firm, a fire is lit around the model causing the wax to melt away. The cavity is filled with a mixture of molten brass and bronze. After the metal cools and solidified, the clay is removed and burnished. Objects commonly made are sculptures of tribal deities, every day objects and jewellery."
