ALUMINUM statues? How cheesy! Sell them at a garage sale. They certainly lend no value to a government office.
ALUMINUM statues? How cheesy!
Aluminum used to be quite the high-tech marvel. Kind of like titanium used to be before it was no longer a Cold War "strategic material."
Aluminum is very appropriate for statuary casting. It requires relatively low heat to cast, is easily shaped, formed, deburred and polished (essentially with modern woodworking-type tools) , can be easily welded and otherwise repaired, and it is non corrosive.
It is not nutritious for the animal kingdom and the powder tastes horrible. But there's not much else wrong with this product of man's long-term development of the earth's mineral resource.
Aluminum is a topnotch recycling substance. It uses a low fraction of the original production energy input to remelt and reuse this ubiquitous product.
Aluminum is the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust.
Must stop for now, but I want to assert that aluminum is not necessarily 'cheesy'.
