Synopsis:

"Expands on the original work that first introduced artists and artisans to the materials, tools and techniques used to create original wax models for jewelry - both fine pieces and costume jewelry. The ancient method of lost-wax casting and traditional casting techniques of modeling in wax free that artist from many of the restrictions of traditional wax modeling, to provide greater freedom and spontaneity in creation, along with a newly achieved speed in execution.

The author combines this understanding of the methods with his own practical experience to present the techniques in a concise, step-by-step format. 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."

Book Description Chilton Book Company, Radnor, Pennsylvania, 1981. Hard Back. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Kallenberg, Lawrence (illustrator). 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. Contents in Ten Chapters: The Process of Lost-Wax Casting, Equipment, Wax Models from Molds, Wax Carving - Part One, Wax Carving - Part Two, Wax Build-up. Sheet Wax and Wax Rods, Accidental Effects, Specialized Wax Techniques, and Finishing the Metal Model. Size: 7 1/4" x 10 1/4". Bookseller Inventory # 15772
