This book introduces the craftsman and the artist to an exciting new method for producing their work. Traditionally, the jeweler has been bound to making original models for lost-wax casting in metal, while the artist who works in wax has been limited to melting the material over an armature. Modeling directly in wax frees both artist and craftsman from these cumbersome and restrictive methods. A highly spontaneous approach, wax modeling combines speed with ease of execution to produce pieces whose grace and beauty can be attained in no other way.
