7. - Losing The Wax

This is the part of the process which results in the name "Lost wax casting".
The completed ceramic 'shell' mould is now turned upside down and heated, this causes the wax to melt and pour out, when the process is complete you are left with a hollow ceramic shell.

“You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty, and then we shall fill you with ourselves.” George Orwell
