Description

Basic Wax Modeling

The author of Basic Wax Modeling, Mr. Hiroshi Tsuyuki, is the Japanese authority on Jewelry Wax Modeling. In this book he presents 11 basic projects, each one designed to teach the use of certain tools and types of waxes in a progressive manner as one’s skills improve.

Each step of every project is accompanied by a photo and text and in some cases supplementary sketches and notes are provided to clarify those particular processes. Mr. Tsuyuki states that by conscientiously completing each project, the student should be well on the way to becoming a designer/modeler.

Hiroshi Tsuyuki’s second book, Practical Wax Modeling, co-written with Yoko Ohba, starts off where Basic Wax Modeling leaves off.
