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.
