This paper will attempt to give the art teacher, art student, or craftsman a reliable guide to the methods, techniques, processes, problems and possibilities involved in producing a piece of cast jewelry by the lost-wax, or cire-perdu., method. None of the available guides to lost-wax casting give sufficient depth of technique, methods, or use of tools for the craftsman or teacher who may wish to improvise a casting experience in the classroom by the gravity-steam method. This paper will also aid the individual who wishes to establish a permanent lost-wax casting technique as a standard method in making jewelry, in that information is given for the more advanced and superior type of casting--the centrifugal method.
