He details the necessary materials and tools, and introduces the reader to their various characteristics and their roles in the jewelry-making process. He guides the artist through the various processes of wax modeling in several projects."

First Edition - Printing Stated. 252 Pages Indexed. Beautiful As New book with flawless interior text pages. Extraordinary meticulous illustrations, also by the author, on many if not most pages. Introduces the Craftsman and the Artist to an exciting new method for producing their work. Traditionally, the jeweler has been bound to making original models for lost-wax casting in metal, while the artist who works in wax has been limited to melting the material over an armature. Modeling directly in wax frees both artist and craftsman from these cumbersome and restrictive methods. A highly spontaneous approach, wax modeling combines speed with ease of execution to produce pieces whose grace and beauty can be attained in no other way. Drawing on twenty years of practical experience, The author has assembled many diverse techniques of wax modeling to present them here in a logical and complete form. He describes the necessary materials, tools, and workshop requirements; then, using finely executed drawings of work in progress, he guides the reader through the different methods available. The book has become a standard reference for the jeweler, craftsman, and sculptor.
