Wax manufacturers


#1

Thanks Rick for the regarding wax manufacturers.
Would you happen to have the addresses for Ferris and Matt? Do
they have a catalog or listing of their waxes and tools?

Brent-

The Ferris and Matt waxes and the Matt line of wax carving tools
are available from most jewelry supply houses- I’ve not seen them
sold directly from the manufaturer. You could call Rio Grande,
Gesswein, Frei & Borel for a catalog. The waxes are available in
blocks, slices, wax tubes of various cross section, and even ring
shapes. I mostly use a large single cut file (flattening and
shaping surfaces) and various medium to coarse cut burs in a flex
shaft to shape the pieces. You can then scrape, sand, pierce,
drill and file to further refine the shape.

Good Luck

Hello, Thought I would jump in and offer info : Ferris is
manufactured by Kindt-Collins , Cleveland Ohio, Their # is
1-800-321-3170 to order cataloogue.

Matt Tools and Waxes address is The Du-Matt Co., 509 Madison
Avenue, 14th flr. New York, NY 10022 at least that is the address
in the front of their instruction book.

Most of the products the make are sold by major distributors
like Rio Grande in Albuquerque # 1-800-545-6566; or Gesswein
from the east coast #1-800-243-4466, from the weastren states
1-800-232-2311, or Freis & Borel in Calif, #1-800-772-3456

These are the companies I have used. I have also ordred direct
from Kindt-Collins and the price is about the same.

Good luck, I am a “mad” wax carve from way back in the mid
sixties when ferris called their wax Carvex. Dates me , don’t it,
hahahah.

Any way, have fun, that is what life is all about.
