Practical Casting by Tim McCreight

This informative and practical book covers a wide range of small scale casting techniques, from
cuttlefish to contemporary lost wax casting. In his usual straightforward language, Tim

particular emphasis on creative solutions to technical and equipment issues, this book is as
popular with hobbyists as it is with professionals. It has become the established textbook on the
subject in universities and craft programs around the world.
