This is the third lost wax silver casting I have made. I obtained a drawing of the Celtic Eternity Knot and transferred the lines to the wax. From there it was a lot of removal of what didn’t look like the knot. That’s what carving is all about.
It is imperative that the wax be as smooth and finished as possible. Every little flaw in the wax will become part of the silver casting.
The actual casting was done on the last night of the class my daughter and I were taking on wax carving and lost wax casting (in silver). That meant I would have to do all the silver finishing work on my own.
No problem as I enjoy doing everything there is about this process. The finished knot is a gift for my spouse, Gloria.
