Cold cast bronze is a technique that involves blending bronze powder with polyester resin to produce a material that gives the appearance of solid metal. Cold cast bronze also have the benefit of not being susceptible to rust, making them far easier to maintain than if they were made of metal. Cold cast bronze will patina a verdigris finish if left alone.
