This is an intermediate and advanced level wax carving class which will explore in depth model making techniques. Intermediate students will create either a ring or a pendant of their own design set with either a cabochon or rough gemstone. Advanced students will design more technical projects. Various carving techniques will be covered, delving deeper into design transfer, layout, carving, and build-up. Both bezel and prong styles will be addressed as well as problem solving for uniquely cut and rough gemstones. Students should provide either a round or oval shape gemstone not less than 10 mm in any direction, or can purchase from the tutors collection. Wax will be provided.
Prior wax carving experience highly recommended.
