Very helpful tutorial, thanks! I've done a bit of wax carving myself, within the constraints of my studies, but there's a number of tips here that I hadn't considered before, such as the square > octagonal > round sculpting. It was also enlightening to see what kind of tools you use for this, as my options so far have been slim and frustrating. I'll be better prepared the next time I'm casting something!

these are amazingly detailed, and rather simple to follow. but i was curious how you turn what you made of wax into metal?

Excellent tutorial, congratulations, helped me better understand the tools and their use. I'll try to do something, if successful, will post on Deviant. Hugs.

i'm just strating at school in jewellry section , but my teacher who's a very good jewellery maker and also makes wax designs for rings ( no detailed/abstract works like this ), lets his rings be casted at a specific fabric for it ... so i don't think u can do this at home / studio ... tough i have a friend at academy of arts doing jewellry and she made some highly detailed very small piece with a different technique ( sorry i dunno how it's called ) but it works kinda like u have a object or u made a object in clay or something similar , and then it's put in somekind of texture or even sand ( sorry if i'm wrong ) where u later on can get a castting of ... but i think the wax carving is a way more common and used way of doing this ...

anyway thx to this tutorial i made my second wax skull ring way better than the first one i did !! and i will continue to practice with carving in wax and next year follow wax carving basics at my school ... i really dig wax carving for detailed stuff like this !
well its fantastic :) thanks for the help, ill just have to look at these things with envy for now , and maybe find a way later in life
i hope you make lots of cool stuff with this, you clearly have the talent <3
