In each of the molds pieces that we made a wax must be poured. There are over 30 mold pieces. Some of the waxes that are poured in these molds will be divided into smaller pieces. Some waxes need to be put together, and all are inspected and worked. Shirley has helped me in the studio and works diligently at the foundry, here she is having some fun with the panther head.

The wax is painted in the the molds.
All of the waxes need to be chased. This means they clean up any imperfections before it goes
to the next step. It is a lot of work, and our very large panther is in many pieces.
