Where to cast jewelry and custom logos, part 2

Share

Casting the master is near completion. We were able to fit in this work order amongst the many buttons, and Buddhas we were already manufacturing. This master was a duplicate of the original carved wax piece from our original post titled “Where to cast jewelry and custom logos” where are artisan spent an entire afternoon sketching and carving the design out onto a wax board into 3 dimensional master master wax. Once completed to our satisfaction, the master wax is submerged into casting cement where is it will get baked inside an oven over night. The wax mold then melts inside the casting cement leaving an imprint of exactly what the wax master piece was. After which liquid metal is injected into the casting cement and fills the empty imprints.

The outcome looks like so.

We are working on replicating and creating a master for this belt buckle this week. The brass piece on the right of this image is the original. The design looks great but we want to make more durable and slightly heavier. This original is rounded on the front but is flat on the back which seem to create more friction on pant material. We have carved out a wax master design on the left to be used to create our master belt buckle tomorrow.

Everything looks great so far, albeit some difficulties getting things started. The customer is currently in Chiang Mai and would like to complete 1 batch of production before he returns to the US. We pushing to have everything done by the end of this week.
