Lost Wax Casting


ACE Kids K-12 / Arts & Crafts -
Fall 2022

Please note: The correct price for this class is $295.

Investigate the fascinating process of casting detailed metal sculptures by using the lost wax method. You will sculpt a series of models out of a hard carving wax, a soft modeling wax, or another heat sensitive material. After encasing your model in plaster or silica, you’ll burn it away. By filling the resulting cavity with molten metal your original sculpture will have been duplicated into a finished metal work. We will also try other casting techniques including sand and plaster reliefs, as well as experiment with the tools, mediums, and sculpting techniques of master casting artists.
