I’ve cast copper in an investment casting setup, and it went
oka-a-y, but it tends not to like to flow well into the mold, and as
it has one temp for both solidus and liquidus it might not make for
detailed castings as would an alloy.

Put a little bit of tin into the copper, like 5%, to help it flow
better and give it a bit of a freeze range.

Oh, and call it bronze.
