Fine Art Metal Casting is the first truly comprehensive and up-to-date guide to mould making and fine art lost wax casting. Mould making and the lost wax casting of metals for fine art are long-established techniques, which involve both artistic and material science considerations. Techniques are currently taught by the process of practical demonstration, which is both time and facility consuming. Furthermore, since an understanding of elements of the casting process requires an understanding of the whole process, teaching is often laboured. Whilst there is no substitute for practical experience, access to this demonstrative source will substantially increase understanding of the processes and inevitably free up valuable teaching time. The methods described in Fine Art Metal Casting cross a broad range of disciplines that are not all associated with the sculpture foundry. For instance, mould-making methods and materials are used by practitioners from ceramics and glass through to jewellery and areas of conservation, archaeology and palaeontology where replicas must be made. Mould-making processes are also used in many design areas from vehicle prototyping to interior design. Therefore, this is a book which is accessible to practitioners of all levels of knowledge and experience. Fine Art Metal Casting provides a unique, all-encompassing, visually based demonstrative source which will prove invaluable for art-, craft- and design-based practitioners, art historians and curators, scientists and conservators, and researchers and students.
