What is Lost Wax Process?

Wayne Salge uses a traditional process to create his bronze sculptures, a process that has been used since the third millennium.

This method is also called, cire-perdue, a method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model or form.  Once the form is made, the wax model is melted and drained away.  A hollow core can be effected by the introduction of a heat-proof core that prevents molten metal from totally filling the mold. 

Please join us as we explore and learn about this ancient process and how Wayne Salge creates his award-winning bronzes.
