Review text - Ganoksin

“I highly recommend this book of technical information and procedures for anyone wanting to learn wax modeling techniques… this book is clear and well organized. Good large step-by-step explanatory black and white photos illustrate the points made in the concise, strictly informational text. This is the second in a series of books on professional wax working for lost wax casting. It might be useful to have read the first volume - ‘Basic Wax Modeling’ before this volume but it is still a good stand-alone text”.
