Advice on lost wax casting Answered

I am looking at the cheapest way to begin casting pewter with the lost wax casting or with creating rtv silicone molds and it looks like dental wax is generally the same as jeweller's wax. I would like to know if this product looks suitable for carving for lost wax casting: http://dentala2z.co.uk/PRE10379/en

I would of course melt it to make blocks to carve from.

It looks like it would do the job, carving wax seems to be really expensive in whatever form. Im also looking at using silicone and corn starch. thank you


Look up the instructables on "oogoo" for the silicone and corn starch. Good luck.

theres also a few instructables on "lost wax" casting. You might want to comment on one of those ibles and ask the author the question.
