- Sounds like he is possibly using a hi-temperature wax
to make a master that would be metalized and
electroplated into a shell that would be backed with
type metal and milled to a working height duplicate
This is a process I use, but don't talk about on this
list, becauset that is really electrotyping, and
outside the subject here.

Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!
