Wax has long been a material in jewelry used to make original models for casting. In this class you will learn various techniques to sculpt, fire, carve, melt, drill and finish jewelry wax into their own unique designs. Metal finishing techniques such as soldering, sanding, polishing, and the use of patinas will be covered, as well as where to source casting and jewelry supplies. We will be using a local caster to cast the waxes. No previous experience necessary. All wax and modeling materials will be provided, but students must pay for the casting charges and metal used in casting their final projects.
