Wax Carving for Jewellers by Russell Lownsbrough and Danila Tarcinale

Wax Carving for Jewellers

Wax carving is like sculpture for jewelry and allows enormous creativity, as so many different forms can be made. This practical guide introduces the techniques to this age-old method through a series of guided exercises and projects and demonstrates how exciting it can be. Drawing on the experience of two master wax-carvers, it also gives invaluable advice on the finish of your cast pieces and how to reproduce them. With over 400 color photos, it gives advice on setting up for wax carving, tools, tool-making, and materials. There are exercises that introduce the beginner to using wax and then build ideas and confidence to try more complex designs. Included are advanced techniques that show how to use stones in a carving and how to add texture and surface detail. Finally, finished examples demonstrate the potential, excitement, and versatility of the method.
