I purchased and antique metal lighting frame for the purpose of using it as a mold to make additional fixtures.
My husband can make a sandcasting of the fixture but then I will have to find a metal shop that can cast it. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

Does the finished product NEED to be cast iron? Why not use a resin casting process? The resin product is good for outdoors and you can duplicate the item you want very easily. More people are recreating ornamental iron in resin every day.
