By Fred R. Sias, Jr. PhD.
This book is a basic introduction to lost-wax casting with emphasis on jewelry making. It is designed to be used both as a textbook and a reference book and is directed primarily at beginners. Experienced casters, however, will probably find some useful ideas; they may even find some new techniques.
Heavy emphasis is placed upon understanding why things are done in a particular way, rather than simply presenting a set of cookbook rules that will always work.
The book is available in a 8.5x11 inch comb-bound version for use in the shop or classroom.
Soft cover - spiral bound - 232pg.
