Advanced Wax Working with Steve Kriechbaum

Friday - Sunday, March 29 - 31, 10-6pm

Work with wax wires and sheet to build intricate rings or pendants to be cast in precious metal. Learn how to attach and carefully build up your design using small wax components. See the difference and benefits to fabricating with wax versus carving down from a solid wax block.

Come get all the best tricks for surface embellishment on wax! Use the rolling mill for custom texturing and imprinting designs on this malleable material. Steve will also demonstrate how to form wax to fit gemstones.

Students will begin with a design, and quickly move to wax working so projects can be invested and cast. Pieces can be cast in Argentium or sterling silver (feel free to bring any casting grain you'd like to use). Students will learn finishing techniques to prepare for stonesetting, so projects can be completed on Sunday with final finish out.

Students are welcome to bring in gemstones or large baroque pearls they are interested in setting, and there also will be CZ's and an assortment of gemstones for sale during class.

Expand your fabrication repertoire by entering the versatile world of wax!
