Lost Wax!!!

So I was scrolling through my facebook page today, and I actually saw something cool! Weta Workshop (the house of my heroes) shared an article about Jonathan Campbell and lost wax casing!!! This is the same process (give or take a few differences in set-up) I’ve been learning at school for the last few semesters. I’ve followed Weta for years and it was really great to see how the techniques I’ve been learning are being applied in the prop making industry. It’s also cool to see that they’ve been employing their local craftsmen to construct objects ranging from statues to film props. Now if only they’d employ me too! 😉

You can check out Weta’s article about Jonathan Campbell here and watch a short video showing some of the finishing process below!
