Product Description

Lost-wax casting is an age-old technique used to make bronze artifacts, a well-preserved ancient example being the two statues of the famous “Riace Bronzes.”
It consists of creating a wax model by using it to make a clay mold. By punching two holes in the clay mold, one at the top and one at the bottom, wax is poured out by heating it and molten bronze is poured in its place, resulting in an identical bronze model. Characteristic of casting with this technique is great precision and fidelity of detail, which is why it is still used for jewelry making.
