SCULPTING A WAX MODEL

Initially I carve a model out of wax. It is a miniature sculpture process. Whatever is created in the wax is exactly what I get in the first metal casting. Detailed designs take days or even weeks of tedious hand work to create the wax model. Each wax is cast using the lost wax casting method.

This gallery shows the carving of a wax model. Explanations of each step are described with each photo.
