There are two methods taught in this two day workshop. Subtractive method utilizes files and burs to carve a desired image. Additive method is a wax build up using alcohol lamps or a wax pen. Both methods are an exploration in achieving an image from your sketches. These methods can be integrated to achieve your desired effect. You will also learn the techniques to get the proper finish on the wax to avoid unnecessary clean-up of your cast piece.
Your tuition includes a $15 Kit Fee.
