Join us for this demonstration introducing viewers to the Lost Wax Casting Process. BARN will soon be offering a "Casting by Proxy" service to Members who wish to have their wax or 3d models cast.
Once a month, starting in December, Members will be encouraged to drop off their wax models or other objects for casting at BARN. More details will be available during this session.
A Casting By Proxy live viewing session will be held online once a month. BARN Jewelry Studio monitors will perform the multi-task process of Lost Wax Casting into metal of wax carvings, 3d print outs, organic materials, or other non-toxic models that have been submitted to the Jewelry studio. We will have these viewing opportunities on our website soon.
