The technique used for this replica set is called “galvanoplastic”, which allows an exact replica to be made, but with a much lighter material. Our team of designers creates a precise carving on a silicone mold in which we pour wax. The wax takes the form of the object, which after that we cover with metal (copper) through galvanoplasty process, and finish it with gold and silver cover.
