The digital SC-3 is slightly larger than the SC2, which still makes it an outstanding travel kiln, but allows you to do bigger stuff! It fires metal clay, light ceramics, decals, china paint, enameling, and glass.
The door opens 180 degrees for safe and easy loading, which is really an excellent feature! Plus, it has a built-in base so, no extra stand is needed.
The SC-3 has a fast-firing element that is embedded in the firing chamber shell. This allows the kiln to heat from the sides and back, so it can reach about 1700°F in twenty minutes. For a metal clay artist, this is heaven!
Additionally, the high-tech ceramic fiber firing chamber is wrapped in a steel inner case allowing the outer steel case to remain cool due to the layer of air between it. Electrical components, located in the base, will even stay cool even at extended hold times.

What is Lost Wax Casting? It is the process of making or carving a shape in wax, then making a mold of the wax shape, and then casting that shape into metal from the mold. The mold is a negative image of the wax. The wax is melted out of the mold through hollow channels called sprues. Lost wax burnout is the process of preparing a casting mold for the melted metal that will be poured into it.
