Many intricate and sculptural pieces of metal jewelry began life as featureless blocks of wax. By working in wax rather than metal, the carver creates form efficiently and opens up design possibilities. Students in this class will gain a thorough understanding of the processes, tools, and materials used to carve wax models for use in lost wax casting. Starting from a simple design, students will transfer it accurately onto a block of wax, then remove large amounts of excess material. Using a wide variety of simple tools, they will add details and refine surfaces, ending up with a completed wax model ready for casting. Casting is NOT part of this class, but students can have their wax models professionally cast or enroll in Introduction to Jewelry Lost Wax Casting to cast their own work. Prerequisite: Beginning Jewelry/Metals. Supply Fee: $20
