Students in this class will learn the techniques necessary for metal casting via the lost-wax method. First, we’ll make wax models of the items to be cast – either by sculpting wax into the desired shape, or by casting wax into a rubber mold of an existing object. We will then build ceramic shells around the models, burn out the wax, and cast molten silicon bronze into the resulting mold. If time permits, we may also explore the basics of sand casting.
