Making brass walking stick handles? Answered

I make walking sticks for a hobby but there are only a limited number of Brass cane handle hardware available commercially and I have ideas for my own designs.

Would a wood model be sufficient for making a wax casting?
I am surprised to see you suggest that Plaster could be used to make the final casting. Is it a special type of plaster in order to stand the heat.

Your lessons are outstanding... I am learning a lot.
