Wax Casting

In the second term we did a days tutorial on wax casting. Now this has probably been one of the most valuable things that I have learnt this year. Put simply, it is making something out of wax, and using a process called lost wax casting to have your model produced in metal.

My first attempt turned out like this. A bit bulky, compared to what I am making now, but still a piece that I really like (It’s the left one).

Anyway its safe to say that I am loving wax, it’s really enabled me to translate elements of my drawings that I had struggled with previously and its just really cool to see the little wax models turn into pieces of jewellery.
