Ceramic Shell

Here the wax original has been dipped in a slurry of ceramic liquid until a shell approximately one inch thick covers the form completely. The opening at the bottom of the piece is where the molten bronze will be poured. Air vent tubes have been added to allow heat to escape. The hot bronze will melt the wax original which will flow out the opposite end leaving the bronze casting inside the shell. When cooled the ceramic will be broken away leaving the metal original.
