Today, it can be hard to tell the difference between real bronze and fake unless you physically inspect it for characteristics like its weight, magnetism and its patina. If it's a fake, it's quite possible you'll spot small differences from the original. Weight and Sound Some sculptors opt for a cheaper alternative to real bronze — a mix of resin and bronze powder called cold-cast or bonded bronze. It's not as durable or strong as bronze, and it's also lighter. If you put a foot-tall bronze sculpture on a scale, it will weigh six to ten pounds. The same figure made of bronze resin only weighs a couple of pounds.
