Lost Wax Casting

Where food, science and production metalworking meet, great things happen.

Lost wax, AKA investment casting, is traditionally used for highly detailed and precise metal objects. Typically parts are cast in bronze, aluminum or steel and used industries ranging from military to jewelry. We decided to spice things up a bit: make your very own chocolate molds. Lost Wax casting translates an object by first casting in wax, creating a solid mold around that wax, melting the wax out of that mold, filling the mold with a molten material (be it steel or butter) and letting the new material solidify before breaking the mold around it.
