Lost-Wax Casting: Old, New, and Inexpensive Methods
This book is a basic introduction to lost-wax casting with emphasis on jewelry making. Designed to be used as a textbook and as a reference book it is excellent for beginners as well as experienced casters. Heavy emphasis is placed upon understanding why things are done in a particular way rather than simply presenting a set of "cookbook" rules that will always work.
