4.Corrections of the Wax Model – Wax Tooling

The seams and other imperfections due to the silicone mold are painstakingly corrected to the point where the wax copy is a perfect copy of the original model.

5.Spruing System

A wax funnel and wax access piping is added to the wax model in order to allow the molten metal to fill the mold.

6.The Ceramic Mold

A ceramic material is applied to the wax model and the attached spruing system. It is then dipped into a refractory combining agent and then powdered with a coating of fine treated sand allowing us to keep the finest of details. This process is repeated until the shell is the correct thickness inside and out.
