Here is the pattern I used. I made it from a piece of laminate flooring and sprayed it with a sandable primer.
sailboat in bronze
This is done with Everdure bronze. It is the first thing I have cast in bronze. I finished it with a drill using sanding and buffing wheels. It would probably have been easier and turned out better if I had a real sander. The paper it is on is 8x 10 inches.

Here is the same pattern poured in aluminum. I am planning to put this on the pole that has our house number on it.
