Add and subtract. Although wax carving is mainly taking away excess material, keep in mind that you can add hot wax to your existing piece to form raised elements too. Once you really get used to this technique you can even go as far as building pendant bails and findings that are already a part of your design, leaving you with less to do once the wax has been cast. Wax carving burrs:Choose from specific scrapers, stone setting, and finishing burrs along with your pendant drill or flex shaft tool to make wax carving simple. Yolanda Andrés (@yolandandres) grew up in a town surrounded by friends and family with the women in her life. But she hung up the thimble to dedicate herself to graphic design and advertising until in 2008, when her daughter was born prematurely, she began to accompany the long hours in the hospital with the thread and needle. So what she started as a way to abstract herself, stop counting hours and relax became her job. Now she is an artistic embroiderer who has worked for large brands and institutions such as Hermès, Museo Thyssen or Carolina Herrera. Use your wax file to round off edges of rings and pendants for a neat, even finish. Remember to use emery paper after filing to remove the file marks you put into your design.

To learn more about the process for replacing a toilet wax ring, read on below! 1. Drain, Dry & Disconnect If you regularly create rings and pendants using wax tube, you may want to use a marker to lay out your plans before you start carving your wax. However, this will need to be reapplied as you carve to stop you from going astray and missing your mark. Some people can carve wax freehand, but this does take a lot of practice and concentration, as you’ll need to consistently see where your carving is headed in your mind’s eye. This is where the real work begins. Using a putty knife, you’ll need to remove as much of the old wax ring as possible from both the bottom of the toilet and the pipe fitting in the floor, called the toilet flange. Clean and dry the flange completely before preparing to install the new wax ring. If the flange appears dented or damaged, call a plumber for an assessment before proceeding. 4. Place New Wax Ring Top tip: Use a low heat for more intricate patterns and switch to a high heat when cutting through harder waxes. Wax shaping burrs The telltale sign of wax ring failure is water leaking out from around the base of the toilet. You might also notice a toilet feeling unusually wobbly if the wax ring is coming loose. Replacing Your Toilet Wax RingPerfection isn’t everything.When you first start out, the whole process of wax carving can be incredibly messy, slow and difficult. But don’t let that put you off. Remember that the three-dimensional, curved designs you’re working towards may not be perfect in reality so don’t expect that of yourself when you first get started. Plus, the redeeming thing about wax carving is that if you make a mistake it can be easily rectified. And once you do carve out that perfect design, it will be cast so that you can re-create it again and again. Try our box of 15 Ferris flat casting wax sheets in a delightful pink hue. Boasting maximum flexibility, these precisely rolled sheets of casting wax have a variety of uses for jewellery makers. They can be formed to any shape and easily cut with a knife or scissors, while designs can be drawn or traced onto them directly. In this tutorial she teaches you how to make the grid stitch, one of the most interesting cross stitches. One of the main brands that jewellers use is Ferris. Ferris wax comes in four different colours (with green and blue most used). Use scrap wax to repair any mistakes that you’ve made. This will keep costs down and it should leave you with enough material to make any repairs you need.

There are a few steps you can take to make sure there are no unwanted, rough edges on your wax carving before going through the lost wax casting process. Adjust your position. Using carvers and scrapers to more precisely carve out your design? Remember to adjust the position of your tool to ensure you’re removing material with each pass of your tool. Green: A very hard wax, it can’t be flexed. Ideal for sharp edges and for intricate carvings and delicate engraving. Blue: Less hard and more flexible than green or purple. Good for rounded surfaces and less intricate designs. This is a popular choice with jewellers and the one we suggest you try firstWith plenty of practice and a little imagination, carving wax can be the key to a whole host of new jewellery making ideas that you just can’t put into practice with traditional metalsmithing tools and techniques. Invest in some basic wax carving tools and equipment before stepping things up a notch and investing in advanced tools.

Add a soft toothbrush to your toolkit. As you work, you’ll notice that your design (and you!) tends to get covered in tiny slivers of wax. By gently rubbing a soft toothbrush over your wax every so often you can make sure that no excess wax gets in the way and you also have a clearer view of how your design is shaping up. Working on a design that has flat, flush surfaces? Use fine grit emery paper to tidy up any uneven edges. Close the toilet lid and sit down, using your body weight to compress the wax ring and push the toilet into place. You may need to shift your weight around several times to complete this process. In the end, you want the base of your toilet to be flush with the floor. With that done, simply replace the mounting bolts and bolt covers, reattach the water supply line to the tank and reopen the supply line valve. Give the toilet a couple of test flushes while carefully inspecting for any signs of leaks.

When and How to Replace Your Toilet’s Wax Ring Suspect Your Toilet Wax Ring Has a Leak? Here’s How to Replace It. Many jewellers claim that using a small piece of an old pair of tights to polish up your wax carving is a great way of making sure that your design is smooth as you go into the casting process.

Our entire range of wax working equipment is a favourite of many jewellers, in particular our ring size and wax wire assortment, which is ideal to form your desired pattern.You can see this process at the beginning of the video above. The ‘master’ - your finished piece of jewellery - is put into a silicone mould and vulcanised using heat and pressure. Once cool, this is then cut out of the silicone and the mould is now in two parts. When the mould is used, wax is injected into it so that the piece can be attached to the wax tree for casting. The majority of jewellers send their wax pieces to a specialist caster. You can learn to cast your own work but this takes investment in additional equipment so it may be something to look at in the future if you find that you enjoy the process. Run your wax design through a cool flame. This will melt any tiny, unwanted bits of wax and they will become part of your overall design. Slow down! There is no need for brute force in wax carving. In fact, it’s all about finesse. So, take your time and slowly carve and scrape away at the wax. The slower and more controlled you are in your approach the more likely it is that you won’t make a mistake and start over. This will also mean that you don’t weaken the overall structure of the wax as you carve. If you’ve already learnt how to carve wax for jewellery making using basic hand tools, then you may want to speed up your process using some advanced, professional tools.
