Because I am new at this it is suspenseful. It reminds me of waiting for a roll of film to come back from the lab. Because I'm learning as I go, I decided to look up how to cast something in wax on the web. I found a video about bronze casting where I learned about a lost wax process. It almost seemed anecdotal until I discovered that they heat up the ceramic molds when they pour the bronze to assist the casting process. So, I stuck my silicone mold in the oven at 150 degrees thinking it would help prevent the wax from cooling on contact and making a bad cast.
