This course is for students who have already taken Casting 1 or have equivalent experience, and is primarily focused on model creation. In this course, you will learn wax working techniques, create your own design in wax, invest, and cast a finished piece- we will also cover mold making/wax injection, finishing techniques, and possibly casting from PLA (students interested in this should bring their completed PLA print, max dimensions 2”x2”x2”, to the first class).
Students will learn how to create their own designs in wax, use the mold making equipment, and gain more familiarity with the casting studio and equipment. You will take home a metal piece of your own design.
All materials for the class are provided. Students should wear boots or closed-toed shoes as well as a heavy-duty long sleeved shirt, such as flannel or a heavy work shirt and long pants. Information for students interested acquiring any equipment of their own will be covered in class.
