ART 3308 - Creative Wax Working
The course offers insight into the techniques used in creating wax models for jewelry and small metal pieces. Students will learn how this technique can add new dimension to creating art pieces in metal, how it enables
us to create complex curves, textures and surfaces that would be impossible to execute in sheet metal. Students will go through the full process of making cast pieces: from making a wax model with simple hand tools to having the final model cast in metal (bronze or brass). They will learn step-by-step how to carve and sculpt wax to create a custom design piece, how to apply surface textures, and how to sand and polish the cast metal piece to end up with a fully finished, unique item.
In this course students will also learn how to carry out a custom design piece, how to turn a simple idea or inspiration into a piece of art. They will be encouraged to follow through with an idea, to make initial sketches and carry this idea to completion.
This course is offered at the Budapest campus.
