I’ve been working on woven designs and looking for a medium that I
can weave and then burn out for casting. I’ve had some success with
monofilament of various thicknesses, but the burnout has proven so
tricky that I’ve resorted to making making molds of my plastic wires
and shooting waxes just to get one in metal. When I heard about Red
Matt Wax I thought my problems were solved, but it’s nearly
impossible to get more than a foot of consistent wax wire from it,
unless it’s hair thin.
Has anyone else worked with this stuff, and can anyone extrude it
into wire of various guages? If it’s for weaving, why not sell it as
wire instead of glue gun sticks?
BTW I love the Prolong-knot bracelet with a Turk’s-head in it,
Loren! Nice One
Thanks for the help,
