Secondly, you will fire the work and apply cold varnishes or polychromes, using tempera or oil colours.

Wax finishing, bronze casting includes the production of an original model in wax, the creation of a cast in plaster or silicon gums to reproduce the model, into which the wax is then poured, touching up of the work to prepare it for casting.

    He vuelto del curso de escultura con Antonio di Tommaso hace unos días. Ha sido una experiencia preciosa, un placer trabajar con él. Mi estancia en casa de Cida ha sido estupenda también. He pasado unos días inolvidables en Florencia. Muchas gracias por todo.

    I have to be honest, I was affraid not to be able to communicate with the teacher and therefore not be able to enjoy the class, but it all went really good. This program taught me so much. The atmosphere of Florence, the kindness and understanding of the teacher as well as the helpful, organized system that of Studiainitalia staff made it all worth it. I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to dive into an atmosphere of learning, open-mindedness and sharing.
    I spent 3 weeks in Florence, and I loved every bit of this experience.
