Does anyone have any good tips that would help me make light weight
models—here’s what I’m doing:
I make built up models out of that stuff like Play Dough and bake
it. Of course the model if cast solid as is would be way too heavy.
So I make an RTV mold of it, inject it with carveable injection wax,
then attempt to hollow out the back. Only troubke us injection wax
clogs my wax burs and to hollow out the back to castable thickness is
too tricky for me.
I’ve seen a pendant that had a wolf’s head with a long nose cast in
silver, very detailed and hollowed out the back to be very light
weight. I can’t imagine someone spending hours and hours hollowing
something like that out, the end result would be very fragile to work
on. Is there some trick to doing this right? Thanks again…Dave
