Go for the Bronze!

Decorative belt buckles have long been a way for people to express their individuality, but now they can be an even more personal expression of who you are. This kit lets anyone craft his or her own buckle, which skilled artisans will then cast in solid bronze.

With all the needed supplies and a clear set of instructions in the box, making your buckle will be a cinch. You'll model the buckle using a block of wax, and two are included so that you can use one for practice. Two double-ended tools let you cut, smooth and draw on the malleable surface. The instructions even include tips on different techniques to experiment with, and guidance on how to fix mistakes. Send the finished wax to the artist using their postage-paid label, and in 3-4 weeks you can strap on your one-of-a-kind fashion statement. Bronze hand-cast in Los Angeles, California.

Gordon Bowen

Gordon Bowen is a sculptor and master foundryman who spent fifteen years working in art foundries in Los Angeles before deciding it was time to start his own. With a particular interest in sustainability, Gordon built Arts Refoundry from found materials including a discarded hot water heater and regular kitchen oven. The Refoundry runs on bio-diesel. In addition to casting Metalcast Kits buckles, Gordon uses the foundry to cast fine art sculptures (both his own and those of other artists) and offer casting workshops to people who want to see what it's like to have their own work cast in bronze.
