First of all I would like to say how much I really appreciate this
site. It has really been an invaluable source over the months.
Now my question…I am carving a wax model of a badge that measures
roughly 3" by 3.5" and is roughly a half inch deep (eventually it
will be cast into a brass badge). I would like to make a back-up mold
of it as it is my first time casting with wax and somehow I am sure
that it’s probably not going to go as smooth as I plan, grin… I was
looking at using Castaldo’s RTV Liquacast but noticed that all of the
frames only go to 6 inches in height - nothing near the 3.5 in width
that I need. The nice lady at Gesswein said she would look into this
for me but it got me thinking how do you folks handle things like
this? I didn’t find any larger frames in my Rio or AJS catalogs
either. So what gives? Anyone have any work arounds? Feel free to
contact me off line.
