THE CERAMIC MOLD
A steel structure is built around the sectioned wax positive. This structure will support the ceramic mold.
The various sections of the wax are repeatedly dipped into the ceramic slip to build-up the ceramic mold. The slip is in constant motion, thereby keeping it liquid. Once a sufficient thickness is built-up around the wax, the slip air dries. It will be into this ceramic mold that the molten bronze will be poured, once the wax has been melted out, hence the term "lost-wax" process.
