Any advice on what to use to give wax models a high polish?
flame polishing. If you happen to have a little torch, you finally
have a use for the smallest tip (that you can light. #1 with oxy
acetylene, or #2 or #3 with propane. You get the tiniest flame you
can that will still stay lit. Can be almost pinhead size. then just
lightly brush the surface of the wax to briefly melt it. Another
method to get a decent polish on the wax is rubbing with a bit of
nylone stocking material.
I’m a bit curious why you need a super polish. I’d have guessed that
what you get with the citrus wax polish and a soft cloth would be
fine. Glossier than that won’t really make any difference in the
final casting or a mold unless you didn’t remove prior tool marks
well enough first…
