The runners and risers are cut up into shorter lengths using a hot knife and then constructed into a network. The network works like this: The runners allow the bronze to flow into the piece, the risers allow the excess bronze and gas build up to be released. The pink bits are spots of soft wax used to support the welds between each piece. It looks like the face sucking alien from the movie and the melting rosin burns like its acid blood, my hand looked like a picnic bar after this process.
