Explore the possibilities of the lost wax technique without the need of wax.
In the lost wax process, we often deal with approximate 2-3% wax shrinkage of the model to be cast, plus additional time for retouching seamlines and any imperfections resulting from pouring/brushing into the mother moulds. The inevitable steaming of the wax can, furthermore, stress and weaken refractory moulds, especially in larger projects.
In this four-day advanced glass casting Masterclass, Antonis will guide you through a complex multistep process of creating positive and negative forms in silicone to eliminate these problems, resulting in a cleaner, more efficient, and more accurate realisation of almost any shape for casting.
