If anyone needs help with there wax carving projects please let me know.
Perhaps I can be of service. I am not an expert in all aspects of
goldsmithing but I can carve a mean wax.I believe that this is the main
aspect of the forum(HELPING EACH OTHER). I have learned to carve master
waxes that have no shrinkage porosity and can be reproduced with lower
labor efforts.I just want to help any way that I can . I have been a
goldsmith for 29 years now, the last 10 yrs. devoted to wax carving for
mass production. I’ve made all the mistakes that you can make(I
think).With any luck I can help you avoid some misery, and you can make
a few bucksat the same time. I make master models for Stuller settings,
Idaho Opal ,Jewelmont, Kirschners Simon Golub,Etc,Etc. This is one of
the ways I make a living. Blessings to all of you, M.G.
Do you use different types of wax for different purposes, or do you have
a favourite type of modelling wax that you feel is a goog all round wax,
and if so what is it.
Also what is the best way to remove air bubbles from investment before
casting, other than using the vacuum method?
If you have any interesting little tips about casting I’m sure there is
many people out there who are interested. Thanks, Ray.
