From Flickr:

I made this using the lost wax casting process with an organic burnout. The material is silicon bronze.

The original sleeve for the Pez broke, so I cannibalized parts from another dispenser: Simba from the Lion King.

The hole in the body resulted from an incomplete casting of the thin part; probably could have had better sprue placement. I like the results, though. The replacement sleeve was modified for the “battle scar” effect, revealing the Pez.

Finishing was minimal, with a pretty standard bronze patina.

    That thing looks great, I agree about the flawed casting adding interest, however; I’m concerned by your choice of bronze, silicoid bronze has a 5% lead content!

    Are you from china? j/k
