The bronze mermaid is a popular outdoor decorative sculpture because humans have always maintained curiosity about the mysterious species of mermaids. It is a good choice to place it by the pool, by the sea, in the garden and other places.
It could be seen that this is a plump mermaid sitting on a rock with her head raised, as if enjoying a comfortable sunbath. Special colors also bring people a different visual experience.
The artists that Trevi cooperates with have rich experience, each has an average of 20 years of casting experience, and at least participated in the production of thousands of clay models. Therefore, the clay models they made come alive, giving the sculpture a soul, with perfect body proportions and facial expressions.
Trevi professionals would provide customers with progress photos of the sculpture every week, and provide customers with various detailed pictures. The most important thing is that there are ready-made clay models for the styles made by Trevi, so it could save the time of the whole project and a lot of expenses.
Trevi’s coloring master used patina technique, and it could be clearly seen that the final color of the mermaid sculpture is very beautiful, which meets the psychological expectations of customers.
Most importantly, the color of Trevi’s bronze sculpture is not only light and not heavy, but also becomes more and more natural as time goes by.
Trevi is also very strict about the packaging of the sculptures. First, the sculptures are wrapped with foam and other shockproof materials, then packed into wooden boxes, and finally reinforced with wooden strips.
In addition, Trevi maintains a long-term friendly cooperative relationship with international transportation companies, and purchases full insurance for customers to maximize the rights and interests of customers.
This is a beautiful feedback photo. You could see that the customer placed this bronze mermaid next to his swimming pool. Getting the customer’s approval is what Trevi is most proud of.

Material: The material of the statue is then decided by the client. The sculptor may also use a small clay model to better portray his conception of the design. The clay model can be modified to fine tune the client’s wishes.
Mini-Sculpture: Finally, the bronze sculpture artist may finalize the miniature model of the final design in order to give the client a preview into how the final product will look. This model is made using the material decided, and it can be used by the client for marketing purposes so that he can raise funds for the sculpture.
Creating the Backbone: The backbone of the bronze statue, also called the armature consists of a steel frame with foam added to it in order to resemble the rough outline of the final product. This is then sealed with a latex coat to secure it.
The Sculpting: The main work starts only now. Many pounds of hot clay are used and applied by hand to “block in” the design for the first time. The bronze sculpture artist then invests a lot of time adding more clay, removing some clay and molding the clay until the final product finally resembles the required design. Tiny details are added on to give more preciseness to the bronze statue and make it more real.
Remove dust with a damp cloth.
Do not use metal objects or wire brushes to clean the sculpture.
Do not apply abrasives or cleansers that will possibly scratch the finish.
ZUD – Non- Abrasive Cleaner. Use to remove stubborn stains. Zud cleans all metal surfaces including bronze. Zud can be used in powder or liquid form.
Lemon Oil – Apply a small amount of oil with a paintbrush or soft cloth. Cover the entire figure with oil. Wipe the surface gently with a soft cloth to take off the excess oil.
Paste Wax- A very thin, even coat of wax should be applied with a soft cloth. Allow the wax to sit and dry before polishing. Wax should be applied after bronze has been cleaned and dried. Do not apply if using lemon oil.
Do Nothing: Many bronze owners prefer to sit back and enjoy the natural reaction and aging process of their sculpture.

Ancient Sculpture Gallery is proud to present you with lost wax bronze reproductions of statues and busts from the Egyptian, Greek, Hellenistic, Roman, Asian Oriental, and Western civilizations. “Lost Wax” bronze (or hot-cast bronze) is actually 100% pure Bronze – essentially copper and tin. The making of a “lost wax” bronze is a complex and time consuming process, and specific technical expertise is needed to accomplish the task of making a bronze. The most known and used process for making “lost wax” involves pouring of molten bronze. This is the same method used by the ancient civilizations to create bronze sculptures. Our lost wax bronze sculptures are produced in this same technique.
