Dear List,

I am trying to do some Investment Casting from Quick-Cast pattern in my RP class.

I am using Zircon-Fused silica with Collodial Silica binder as slurry. But today when I tried to dip the pattern, the slurry never stick to the pattern. I also used very thin coat of Parafin wax to avoid shell breaking.

Is there any other method ? Any suggessions ?
