Casting molten metal is one of the oldest metal techniques dating back thousands of years. You will learn how to work both hard and soft wax. These wax objects will be cast in sterling silver incorporating the lost wax casting technique, or as the French would say, cire perdue.
 
We will cover calculating wax weights, spruing of waxes, safety issues and finishing. You do not need prior metal experience but those that have taken a jewelry class will be able to use those skills in the finishing part of this technique.
