To begin with Castilene 

Soften with a variety of heat resources including heat lamps, hot boxes, heat guns, crock pots, microwave ovens, hot water or double boilers. DO NOT USE A DIRECT FLAME. Regardless of the heat source, avoid heating above 170°F or bubbles may result. Castilene can be melted and poured at about 170°F. The strength and light weight of Castilene allow sculpting without a wire armature in many cases.

Working with Castilene

Hard Castilene will remain malleable while working if kept warm. All three hardness are compatible with one another. Hard Castilene can be used as an armature and soft or medium Castilene can be applied on top of the hard. All generic wax tools and wax carving methods are compatible with Castilene. Heat tools before carving. Chill Castilene to achieve optimum hardness for high detail and burnishing.

Polishing and finishing methods

Use wax compatible products including Goo Gone. De-Solv-it, d-limonene, or Prepsol based products. Mineral oil, Turpinoid and petroleum products will lubricate the surface. Polish with chiffon, nylon or burnishing tools. Castilene does inhibit silicone or other mold rubbers. Castilene can be burned out for lost wax casting.
