Ceras

We create our waxes with the highest quality materials, we ensure that we always keep our same suppliers to offer a stable and quality product for our customers.

The main difference between the wax that is created between the Toy wax and the others, because the Toy Wax does not have clay point, and if heated it melts and becomes liquid is great for casting parts in silicon molds for refinement.

The other waxes already have this clay point and can be heated and shaped with the hands like clays.

See the features of each;

MaxCast:
-Models-like clay;
-Super-tough (tougher than any clay we have today, the only harder wax we have is ProCast);
-Drop-resistant (to some extent, of course);
-It works great with waxpen;
-Color-light brown (color of the clay C15 and C9) pleasing to the eye and allows viewing of light and shadow more easily;
-It enables you to casting, it has high fluidity and makes no bubbles when melted;
-It has a very good and precise carve;
-Works well with D-Limonene and Alcohol torch;
-Can be used in the process of electro-plating of copper for lost wax mold making to vinyl castings;
-Excellent to be melted and poured into molds to make a positive part of an existing model (approximately 3 to 4% shrinkage when melted at 185ºF).
-It is not essential to use armature, although the armature facilitate the initial positioning of the character for visualization.
-Can be heated in the same way that the Oil Clay, bulb ovens, heat gun, domestic hair dryers, etc.

Hardness

DIM CLAY is available in 10 different grades:

Gray clays for sculpture:
-Soft - is perfect to be used for quick sketches or larger scale sculptures whrn you don′t want to use a water base clay. Can be easily worked with hands whitout the help of any tools;
-Medium - a little harder, allowing a greater wealth of detail, to be worked with hands and with loop tools;
-Firm - a harder clay to be worked with loop tools which involves a level of detail very good, and can also be worked with hands;
-Extra Firm - a harder clay to be worked with loop tools which allows you a higher level of detail, this clay can be melted and poured into molds, silicone rubber, in order to make changes to a number . To be working with your hands, you need a heat gun, hairdryer or bulb oven to soften the clay;
-Hard - at the request of some customers we develop a gray harder clay, with the same properties and needs of clay Extra Firm and is ideal for carving;

Brown clays for sculpture or Industrial Design:
-Clay C9 - a more modern version of clays for design, based on gray clays. Smooths as the clays for sculpture, but is dry and easier to smooths than clays CS, CM and CA, it's very plastic and playable. Easy to handle and scrape and hardness are concerned like the extra firm clay or CA;
-Clay C15 - is very similar to the C9 only a tougher version, this is the harder clay than we have at the moment.
To choose the hardness that will fit you (there is no way I choose for you), you have to get the clay in the hand and handle to see which is better, especially if you have never used this kind of material. It is essential to handling before the choice, we have customers who do the same type of work, but work with different hardness, it depends from person to person.

Consider also the region of the country where you are, because the clay softens with heat, so if you're in a hot area, will need a clay firmer clay than those who are in a cold area. If you have doubts about the hardness of clay, contact us, we will be glad to help. Click on the names of hardness to watch videos of the clays.
