This minature pug is perfect for anyone who loves British wildlife, particularly red squirrels. These bronze pieces are easy to keep clean, just buff with a soft cloth or brush.
The lost-wax process, also called “cire-perdue” is a method of metal casting where a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created using a wax model. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away. A hollow core can be created by introducing a heat-proof core that prevents the molten metal from totally filling the mold. The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has changed very little since then.
