"Lost-Wax Casting: Old, New, and Inexpensive Methods"
By Fred R. Sias, Jr.
Paperback: 214 pages
Publisher: Woodsmere Press (February 23, 2006)
This book is a basic introduction to lost-wax casting with emphasis
on jewelry making. It is designed to be used both as a textbook and a
reference book and is directed primarily at beginners. Experienced
casters, however, will probably find some useful ideas; they may
even find some new techniques. Heavy emphasis is placed upon
understanding why things are done in a particular way, rather than
simply presenting a set of cookbook rules that will always work. The
book is also available in a 8.5x11 inch comb-bound version for use in
the shop or classroom.
