How do you make a mold for lost-wax casting?
posted by Vidiot to sports, hobbies, & recreation (3 answers total)
My dad wants to cast the pawn from the Lewis Chessmen
set in bronze. I picked up a reproduction pawn
made out of marble dust and resin. He's intending to do this using the "lost wax" method of casting...but he's wondering what material he should use to make the initial mold of the pawn.
Anything else he should know about this process, or other insights?
