All Starlite Originals sculptures begin from an original made of plasticine, the result of an artists sculpting and re-sculpting soft clay. From these originals, first-generation models are created. Each sculpture is sectioned into a myriad of component parts and placed into molds for the creation of individual cavities. In the old world tradition, the master mold is then created. Once the mold is complete, molten metal is poured into the cavities in the mold and left to cool. Each part is then removed from the mold, cleaned, assembled, and hand tooled until it looks exactly as the artist created it.
The sculpture then goes through numerous metal plating and patina application steps, completing the Mixed Media process. Starlite's sculptures are made from a combination of different materials such as Lucite, lost wax bronze, fine pewter, brass, copper, 24 karat gold vermeil and various hot torched acid patinas to give the pieces it's coloring. A patina is created by the application of certain chemicals which oxidize the metal during the hot-torching process. The combination of heat and acid etch into the metal, producing a rainbow of color finishes. The color produced by the patina becomes one with the metal.
