FAQ Wax kit


How does the casting work? 

The metal takes the exact shape of your wax. It picks up an impressive amount of detail. You could say the wax will literally turn into your chosen metal. As the molten metal is poured into the mould the wax melts leaving the metal in its place.

How long will my wax take to cast? 

We will wait until we have at least 15 pieces before we do a casting. So once we have received back 15 we will get them cast. From then it will be around 2 working weeks. Don't worry we will keep you updated!

 

I want it to be high polished not just barrel polished? Whats the difference? 

When a casting comes out it has a little metal bit where the metal has been poured in, this is called the spru. So first we saw this off then a barrel polish is when its put in a barrel polisher which washes it around to make it shiny. It allows all the details to be kept. 

With a high polish you take off the surface of the piece to allow a smooth extra shiny finish. 

 

I want to add a professional hand engraving?

Can I send more than one piece of wax back?
