  • Lost Wax casting has been used in ancient times and continued today to make jewellery and sculptures. It is a process where a piece of wax is either carved or moulded to the desired shape and then cast into metal. The cast metal piece is then cleaned and polished as a finished piece of jewellery or object. Wax carving is an effective method of making jewellery, which requires little space to work and minimum tools. You can achieve intricate details using various tools to shape your work. Jewellery wax is affordable and readily available, any mistakes can easily be modified before casting or it can be reused. It is ideal for aking complex organic, curvilinear forms, sweeping curves, and most anything that is difficult to construct directly from metal. Unlike working directly with metal, wax is a pliable material that you can cut away or build it up by applying molten wax, allowing you to be as creative as you want, without the fear of making an expensive mistake.
