Ring Carving Kit for Sand Casting
Ring Carving (Kit Only)
This kit is designed to be used in conjunction with our sand casting workshop - found under 'classes' in main menu.
Carve a custom ring at home before attending our sand casting workshop to cast it in silver yourself.
How it works:
Order the kit and carve your wax ring before your workshop. Bring your wax ring(s) along to your casting day to make it/them yourself in solid silver. (The workshop day is £75 and needs to be booked separately)
At the casting workshop you will make a mould from your wax using oiled sand, you will then pour molten silver into the mould to create your silver ring. When your ring comes out of the mould you will learn how to saw off the sprues (pouring holes), file, refine and and polish your ring to a high standard.
The beauty of this process is that the wax can be used multiple times and you can cast up to 3 items in a workshop day (depending on time and skill level).
The kit comes with instructions for how best to carve a ring for the delft sand casting technique.
Book a casting workshop by heading to the 'classes' section of the website and scrolling down to find the sand casting workshop. Upcoming workshop dates are listed.
Extra waxes – ordering 2 x extra waxes with your kits is an option, there are two size options - see drop down menu.
If you like the idea of carving a ring but you'd like the casting to be done for you, we offer this as an option. Go to the 'Jewellery making kits' section of our shop and find the Ring Carving Kit with Silver Ring. With that option you can post us your wax and we'll post you your silver ring made from your wax ring.
