Trained in the mythical kingdom by the venerable masters in the art of lost wax casting.
Based in the sunny island of Singapore, The Imperial Smithster is reviving the ancient art of lost wax casting. A technique shrouded in mystery, born since the days of the pharoahs, it would, as its name suggests involve the carving of wax, burning the wax away ( lost wax) , then replacing the wax with any metal.
With the current trend of everything bespoke, we use this technique to produce everything from jewellery, desktop ornaments, custom utensils, keepsakes to everything in between, carefully handcrafted with the utmost attention paid to details.
See lost wax casting as the professionals do in jewellery manufacturing.
Lost wax casting has been around for centuries and have been used since the early days to cast items such as weapons, sculptures and jewellery out of brass. It involves first, sculpting of a wax model, applying the right sprues, pouring a investment over the wax model, burning out the wax (hence the term lost wax casting), then pouring in molten metal into the cavity left by the evacuated wax.
