Wax granulation beads


#1

Hello All, I am carving a band with a channel which I want to place
beads of wax into (similar to granulation with a channel).

My question is then, if there is a way to bead up wax with a wax pen
(which I have done) and glue them into the channel so they will stay
in place during the pouring of investment. I would like to have a
finished ring after casting and not have to solder each bead into
place after casting.

Thank You for your knowledge, as always…Ann

Ann,

Yes you can glue the wax beads in place using white glue or instant
glue. Better yet would be to use sticky wax.

The only problem with doing it this way is that you will never make
the finished piece look as crisp and clean as doing actual
Granulation.

Good Luck
