Sculpting Ultimate Mini-Beasts


Project 'Ultimate Mini-Beasts' involved working with two local Kindie groups from Newtown Public School. The aim was to workshop their creations into wax figures that will then be cast in bronze. These children had been working on this project for weeks, taking it from initial design drawing, to 3D representation using mixed media. They were assisted by Crawford's team to work with a soft wax to produce their Ultimate Mini-Beast Creatures. The enthusiasm of these young artists made it a pleasure to work with. They had much support from the school staff and some older students to assist warming up the wax and ensuring their creations were secure. Extending our skills and knowledge to share with our local community is important to Crawford's Casting. Encouraging our youths to express themselves through a range of media is exciting. Seeing their interest in the bronze casting process is highly rewarding.
