I’m interested in casting silk fabric into a silver object.
Is there any specific information on this subject?
For example: Is the silk fabric applied to the carved wax in some way or is the silk fabric backed by applying wax to it?
For example: if the object is to be a ring, how would the fabric be attached to the wax or how would the wax be attached to the silk? I’ve experimented a bit with applying wax with a wax pen to a “round band of silk fabric”–it’s difficult to keep a round form since the fabric isn’t stiff enough to begin with.
Does the silk fabric burn out completely? or, being an organic material, does it burn out unevenly?
What is the casting procedure once the material is attached to the wax?
I appreciate any information and suggestions.
