Wax is a wonderful material that it can be built up and carved down. When warm, the wax is flexible like clay, but then quickly hardens. Though its strength does not need any support unlike clay. Once hardened, warm pieces can be added. For subtracting, students can make some simple tools that, when heated over a candle, can be carved away. In this workshop, students can learn all about the unusual flexibility of wax commonly used for casting and the process. Students may also choose to caste their sculpture into metal.
Level: All Levels
Supplies: Basic materials will be supplied, such as wax and metal for tools, but not metal to caste. Additional materials available for purchase in studio.
