Process Of Making Brassware

Using the lost wax method of casting brassware, the process begins by making a sculpture of the item to be cast.  The sculpture, made from clay or carved out of wood, is lternatively dipped in hot wax and cold water until the desired thickness of the wax is acquired.  The wax shell is touched up and coated with slurry.

The slurry-covered sculpture, which has a tiny outlet, is then heated in a furnace to melt the wax, which drains out through the outlet.  Molten brass is then poured into the slurry mold.  After the brass has cooled and solidified, the slurry mold is broken off. Items that have been cast separately are then soldered.  The completed item is then polished.
