sending again, in UUencode.

The pewter artist, richard neal, was drooling pewter into his mold, not
covering a statue. Metal so easily melted gives the deep texture as gases
and steam escape.
A Napoleon Mordas fellow was sputtering bronze onto his sculpture, very
amazing. His english was shaky, though. Look for a sputtering company

aren't you in Ohio? This is not that big a deal, tech-wise. They may tell
you what they prefer as a base material.
Otherwise, there are metal-rich paints, and leaf, which is not hard, and
true bronze and aluminum casting.
