This is a brief outline of my lost wax casting technique. There are several ways to cast, this is just the way I do it as a one woman show! Also, this was my set up about 7 years ago and some things have changed - I have a slightly updated longer version here on my website.
You can view a lot of my finished work at BethCyr.com or BethCyr.etsy.com
I use all sorts of random tools for my wax working. Most importantly, my fingers, and a tiny needle in the end of a pencil! I also made a little denatured alcohol lamp out of a baby food jar. The wax I use most of the time is a soft brown wax. It's my favorite.
