Lost Wax Casting

I can't believe it is Friday.  This week kind of got away from me, but I didn't want it to end without writing another entry or two. So here's a quick rewind:

We got our first assignment in Arts Metals on Monday.  We'll be casting multiple rings.

Step one is to play with the wax to learn what it can do.  We heated up and molded and shaped it.  Here is what I made.

We'll eventually use the wax to create molds that the rings will be made from.  I won't be casting any of these, but it was fun playing with the wax. 

I missed class on Wednesday, and I am really looking forward to this coming Monday so I can learn about this process.
