Wax Carving

Focus on learning techniques used to create wax models for jewelry making. Learn to carve and sculpt custom designs from wax. Techniques include layout and design, sawing, carving with files, using flex shafts, surface textures, and flame techniques. Once wax models are created you can take them to a caster to be cast into silver, gold, rose-gold or other metal. Wax carving is a great technique for anyone looking to develop their skills or run a jewelry business. It is perfect for mini-production runs as well as one-off creations. Beginning Metals, Lost Wax Casting or other bench experience is suggested to get the most from the course. Masks and social distancing are required in this and all Sawtooth classes.
