Next course: 17-19 February 2020
The first module of the Wax modeling and centrifugal casting course teaches the main techniques for modeling wax then transforming it in metal (silver) through casting.
Wax molding technique allows a different type of expression than the classic welding technique. Understanding the process of molding and casting is also a way to improve your art skills. The aesthetic potential of this method is that spontaneous ideas can be shaped more easily. Modeled wax offers the unique advantage of having a palpable "sketch" that can be modified and improved before becoming the final product, the wax being at the same time, a blueprint and a prototype.
