Composition of pewter figurines:
The core material of these ranges is a mix of silica and limestone bonded under pressure, which once it has been cast and cured, creates a strong, hard and durable material similar to ceramic. This is then given a layer of cold cast pewter which is made with a process known as ‘Cold Cast Pewter’. These are made by mixing real pewter powder with a bonding paste and applying this to the surface of the piece. This leaves a thin external coat of real pewter and when polished, it gives the piece the look and feel of a proper bronze sculpture, but at a more affordable price.
