In the late 19th century, pewter came back into fashion with the revival of medieval objects for decoration. New replicas of Medieval pewter objects were created, and collected for decoration. Today, pewter is used in decorative objects, mainly collectible statuettes military figures and figurines, game figures, aircraft and other models, (replica) coins, pendants, plated jewellery and so on.
Casting is a method of producing one or more copies of a sculpture. Typically, the original sculpture is modelled as usual and covered with a moulding material which sets hard when dry. The mould is then separated to release the original sculpture. Once the mould is reassembled, at its most simple the casting material is poured into the void and left to set.
Traditionally, molten bronze is used as the casting material, but modern alternatives include resin. When the cast sculpture has cooled, or cured, the mould is again separated to release it, and reassembled ready to cast the next copy. When molten bronze is used, it is more typical to use a lost wax or similar process so that the finished piece is hollow rather than solid.
