Wax model making allows jewelry designers to create original designs without the restrictions of working directly from metal. With wax, prototypes can be created in a soft medium that can be carved, molded or a combination of both. After the designs are completed in wax, a caster then casts the originals in the metal of choice making one-of-a-kind pieces or making several copies. In addition to wax model making, this course will also cover metal finishing. No previous jewelry design experience is required. NOTE: Please bring a small sketchpad, a pencil and an apron to the first session.
