Introduction to Wax Carving
For many jewelers, casting is a valuable technique to create multiples of a design for sufficient volume for optimal sales, as well as a creative technique to create settings, textures and contours in wax. In this workshop, we will focus on wax carving a ring with an incised pattern. This project will introduce participants to wax carving tools, laying out a pattern, etc. This is the first in a series of wax carving workshops that will build on the techniques of previous workshops. Carving rings with settings and casting gemstones in place will be some techniques covered in future workshops. Once the wax ring is complete, we will send them to a casting house to have your wax patterns cast in metal. The cost of the workshop includes the wax for carving and any wax tools. Casting costs will be covered by each participant.
