Lit-Art Company specializes in monumental art casting from bronze, aluminum and cast iron. Besides here they produce plaster sculptures of any size. 

First of all they make a full-size model of a future statue.

A lump form made of this mixture is dismantled. The wax is removed manually. The interior surface of the dismantled form is covered with non-paint stick. The cavities, from where the wax is previously removed, are filled with molten metal.
