The first module of  the Wax modeling and centrifugal casting course teaches the main techniques for modeling wax then transforming it in metal (silver) trough casting.

Wax molding technique allows a different type of expression than the classic welding technique. Understanding the process of molding and casting is also a way to improve your art skills. The aesthetic potential of this method is that spontaneous ideas can be shaped more easily. Modeled wax offers the unique advantage of having a palpable "sketch" that can be modified and improved before becoming the final product, the wax being at the same time, a blueprint and a prototype.
