About this Event

Part III of the lost wax casting classes. Student must have taken part II and invested a wax original or have an invested original approved by the instructor. Bronze casting material can be purchased in the class but silver or silver casting grain must be provided by the student. Student will be told at the part II class how much casting material will be needed.

This class will consist of taking the invested wax flask which the instructor will have burned out by class time and pouring casting material. Cast will then be removed from investment and examined, then finished as much as possible with finishing and polishing tools.

Class will require working in the vicinity of extremely hot material, though instructor will do pour if requested.

Special Considerations and Warnings

Students must wear full shoes, preferably of leather or natural fiber, and wear full length pants. Clothing of natural fiber (cotton, linen, or wool) is preferred but aprons and gloves will be available. Eye protection is available.
