Working in wax has caught my interest to learn too… I just bought a
book online and am about 3/4 of the way through it. (Modeling in Wax
for Jewelry and Sculpture by Kallenberg, Lawrence) It covers several
small projects, gives suggestions for tools, and explains some of the
characteristics of the different color waxes.
I’ve always modeled in silver and then cast the pieces to gold
working in wax should make some things much easier. I’ll be keeping an
eye on this thread for any good book suggestions too.
Have fun with it,
