Learn to make jewelry and small
sculpture using the lost wax technique. Emphasis
is on creating your own design in wax using such
techniques as carving and modeling, or working
with sheet wax.
The wax is imbedded in a plaster-like material
and then burned away. This leaves a space inside
the plaster into which the metal is poured. After
breaking away the plaster, the final object is
cleaned and polished or patinaed as desired.
Jewelry is usually cast in silver, but there will
be a class session devoted to casting bronze items.
