The fettling of sculptures is divided into two areas: small works, where predominantly lost-wax casts are hand-chased to achieve a finely-crafted surface; and large works, where sandcast panels are skilfully assembled onto their armatures. To promote a variety of skills and to keep quality high, craftsmen are encouraged to practice both disciplines.
