Students will observe demonstrations of a range of processes involved in incorporating free-form gemstones into wax models for lost wax casting. Techniques include heat sinking a free-form gemstone, carving various types of integral settings in wax, nesting mating parts for a contoured fit, and using files and gravers to sculpt the finished wax model form. Students will then have the opportunity to use the techniques demonstrated to create their own wax model using a cabochon cut Lake Superior agate.
