Lost Wax Casting: RINGS!
Lost Wax Casting: RINGS!
This weekend intensive will take you from wax model to finished silver ring as you learn about lost wax casting. Learn the basics of wax carving and model finishing techniques as you create your ring design. Then prepare your model for casting by spruing and investing. On the second day we will burn out the wax using a kiln, and then pour molten silver into the cavity to produce the positive of the ring. After casting, learn how to clean up and finish your ring. This class has a space limitation of only six students. Tools will be available for use.
10:00 am – 6:00 pm Saturday, March 18 – Sunday, March 19
All levels are welcome, and no metalworking experience is required (ages 18 and up).
Class Fee: $300 + $25 Materials fee. The cost of sterling silver casting grain is not included, and will be determined by weight after your ring has been cast. Students will be charged for casting grain used at the end of class on Sunday.
