I was commissioned to create a Guy Fawkes mask for a client to wear as a pendant. I chose to hand carve a wax model to be used in this casting method.
Finding an image online, I glued it to an appropriate size block of carving wax. Rough cutting the basic shape, refining the wax with power rotary files and then a selection of carving tools. The model was hollowed to reduce weight and improve the final casting.
Using the lost wax method of casting, I embedded the model in a cylinder of casting investment. The model is burned away over a number of hours leaving a cavity in which molten silver was poured under a vacuum. Cut off, filed and polished with a variety of tools and abrasives, Balck patina applied to reveal the finished pendant.
