In this title, Josh takes you step-by-step through the sculpting process of carving wax to produce a working master. Wax masters are used in the casting process for sculptures and jewelry making, and in this lecture, Josh carves a low-relief belt buckle that he later has cast in silver. Using a modern version of this traditional medium and utilizing the subtractive techniques of traditional carving can be a powerful tool for maximizing accuracy and efficiency. Using common hand and power tools Josh demonstrates simple relief carving from the rough cut-out to identifying low points, shaping, beveling and adding wax to create new elements to your sculpture. This title is a useful fundamental process for sculptors of all levels.
