MetalCast (“Cold Cast Metal”) is a pre-finished surface available for some of the Formglas residential standard parts. MetalCast has an uneven buffed / burnished appearance and therefore is not suited for large flat surfaces. Parts made in MetalCast will always have visible joints and no attempt should be made to provide a monolithic appearance. Thickness of the product will vary and this variation depends upon a number of factors including design detail and end application. For example a door casing or mantel should be made in GRG which has an extremely hard surface, whereas a softer plaster may be selected for cornice or ornate moulding applications particularly when sculpting is desirable.
MetalCast is availabe in the following finishes:
As these finishes are created from real metal powders the potential for customisation is very limited.
