3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Wax working for jewelry and small-scale sculpture, rubber molding processes, and lost wax/centrifugal casting of bronze and (optional) sterling silver and karat golds. Extensive technical information for students who are design-oriented. Assignments allow projects in all formats (design, one-of-a-kind jewelry, fine art, etc.) and students are encouraged to use techniques innovatively and expressively. Students taking the course a second time choose one aspect of the course (wax carving, wax modeling, wax impressions, vulcanized rubber molding, etc.) and produce a small body of work investigating that aspect in depth. Procedures for sending out work to professional contract casters are also covered.
