STAGE 5

After the ceramic covering is completely dry, the piece is kilned at 980º C. becoming very hard, while the wax melts and pours out of the ceramic mould. Hence the term "lost wax".

The now empty mold or second negative is filled with molted bronze poured at 1200ºC. The result is the final bronze copy of the original sculpture, or third positive.
