The session started with a look at how the lost wax bronze casting technique has been used historically and by modern sculptors, then a clear explanation of different ways to model with the wax that Abi had sent in the post. I then warmed the wax in a microwave and worked on a model, which I will send back to her to be cast in bronze for an extra cost.
Abi gave very clear explanations and answered all my questions, showing me useful examples, and the zoom call worked well.
Response from Abigail Burt Art:Thank you so much Penny. It was lovely to spend the session online with you. I look forward to receiving your finished sculpture!
