Waxes invested with the ceramic shell waiting for the burnout process.



Each wax is invested in a ceramic shell that picks up the detailed surface. After 6 to 8 coats of ceramic, the completed shell is placed in a burnout oven pre-heated to 1,800 degrees.

The wax is eliminated and the detailed image is retained in the ceramic shell. Thus the lost "wax casting" process.
