"Victory" Brown Wax?

Anyone out there have a good source for "Victory" brown wax or brown microcrystalline wax? It seems that other than Arizona Supply and J.F McCaughin there isn't a lot out there. Used to be pretty common stuff back in the day. It seems that every foundry is using the stuff, but my old sources seem to have dried up.

Re: "Victory" Brown Wax?

i don't think they make it anymore. the old company Bracca (or something like that) quit making it. Now there is Optimus 3.0 Microcrystaline wax.

Just doing a quick google search on it comes up with :
The Complete Sculptor
Freeman Supply
Sculpture House

I don't know where they are getting their supply from but if it's from J-Mac like we do here at Ball Consulting, then it's the Optimus 3.0 Micro wax. J-Mac has that man made type, it's not as soft, but it's not as sticky either. It's less expensive than the Optimus.

Good luck
Niki

Re: "Victory" Brown Wax?

Here is Freeman supply web site. It is an industrial supply house.
http://www.freemansupply.com/index.htm

Small amounts and number of items are dealt with here at their hobbyist site.http://www.hobbycast.net/

Both sites have some very good video's on the subjects related to molds,castings and foundry type work with a lot of materials.

here is another source for wax that I use, Remet, 800-445-2424. I have found them to be very helpful and will send you samples for free. Just talk to them about what properties you desire in your wax.
