John Fitz Quote:aluminum bronze?
Hi Guys, Can anyone give me an idea as to what this color looked like? Some say silver but I think it would be more of a metallic, brown-ish color. The Czech description is; "hlinikovym bronzen". Thanks to all for your comments.
Hi John Fitz,
I have probably worked with it or some variation. I would have to say that the color depends on the percentage of the contents. Most alloys are altered by varying the amounts of the ingredients, usually to take advantage of one mineral's properties for the desired results.
Aluminum Bronze should have aluminum as it's main ingredient since it is listed first. Remember that I am not, nor profess to be a metalurgist!
Hope that's a help, FOKKERJ P.S. If you are just doing research for portrait or modelling, don't go to heavy with the bronze color! As for aluminum, is it cast, extruded, machined, and or polished? The color, texture, value, etc. can vary greatly. With out any color added it can run the gamut from dull Grey to shiny Silver in appearance.
