Catherine Ronan Posted May 31, 2014 Share Posted May 31, 2014 This is/was the Chrysnbon parlor stove. I cast all the pieces in bronze. It was rather plain stove so I added a lot of casting wax embellishment to the plastic before it was cast. In hindsight, I probably should have cast the silver pieces in nickel silver and dulled them way down after it was finished. If I wanted to use this piece I could plate them and do that. When you add wax to plastic you have to be very sure it is welded on and cannot come off. Other wise when you vacuum invest your flasks the added wax parts can break free in the investment. I did that with a hot needle all around the edge of each addition. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
