VC-ICS01 Video Course: Introduction to Claw Setting – Part 1- The Wax Process (70 mins)

$22.00$130.00

This video course is part 1 in a series of Claw setting using wax instructional videos. Part 2 will be available soon and covers the metal finishing process for this design, showing you how to set the Pearl into your metal casting.

This 70 minute video course takes you step by step through the entire wax process of creating a claw setting. It shows every part of the process and I’ve deliberately done it in a very drawn out and detailed way so you can see exactly what my hands are doing to create this design. If you do have a little experience with wax jewellery making, feel free to skip through the video to the parts you need.

This exercise is suitable for the complete beginner although I would recommend our introduction to wax jewellery making video courses to give you more of a thorough background to some of the basic techniques.

 

Option 1 – Video set (including 3 supplementary videos)

Option 2 – Complete Kit (Video, wax welder, wooden mandrel, wax&stone kit)
