“I highly recommend this book of technical information and procedures for anyone wanting to learn wax modeling techniques… this book is clear and well organized. Good large step-by-step explanatory black and white photos illustrate the points made in the concise, strictly informational text. This is the second in a series of books on professional wax working for lost wax casting. It might be useful to have read the first volume - ‘Basic Wax Modeling’ before this volume but it is still a good stand-alone text”. - Charles Lewton-Brain (internationally known lecturer, author, designer, inventor of Fold-Forming) from his review on Ganoksin. 

In this book jewelry wax modeling techniques are introduced and explained in detail, illustrated with step-by-step photographs.

Some special features of Practical Wax Modeling  include:

a) Practical applications when using a variety of waxes

b) Mitsuro and its uses

c) Demonstrations of a variety of textures

d) Methodology of finishing castings.

Practical Wax Modeling was written as an applied compilation for the book Basic Wax Modeling.
