It appears that in the 14th Century a man fashioned a silhouette of a snarling dog out of a sheet of leaded bronze and nailed it to the side of his house on the Headland in Hartlepool.
A soft lining, approximately 1/8-inch thick, of high leaded bronze is metallurgically bonded to the inside liner surface and then finish machined.
An example of this practice is with leaded bronze, which is often cast without risers so that thermal gradients are kept as uniform as possible.
The "Analysis of Casting Defects" guide published by the American Foundry Society offers these examples: "In gray iron, a high sulfur may lead to manganese-sulfide slags" and gas defects; and "Leaded bronzes may show separation under conditions of imperfect balance, e.g., yellow brass." Some alloys produce dross or slag (impurities caused by oxidation) more readily than others, presenting an obstacle to clean casting production.
