Instructor: Jennifer Stenhouse 


If you are carving wax models for lost wax casting, you are going to want to know how to make molds and get successful wax pattern duplicates. We will touch on the variety of molds available that you can make in your own studio. We will also familiarize you with outsourcing the job to a pro, how to find the person for you, how to ship your waxes, and what to expect. Wax injectors and the wide variety of injection waxes for mold making will be discussed to familiarize you with their working properties.

The focus for this class is getting successful waxes from your mold and alterations, like adding to the design, sizing for rings, and more options. Using silicone-based molds for wax duplication and injection few will demonstrate a number of ways to pour and inject waxes into the mold to avoid casting problems. We will show you what you need to be aware of before making a mold, and how to avoid potential problems down the road as well. 

This is part two of the series on wax molds. Be sure to sign up for Wax Molds Part 1: Making the Mold!
