Jeweler Susan Zeiss found out about Mitsuro-hikime, a Japanese wax that has characteristic striations, and she worked for three years to reverse-engineer the formula. Now she’s sharing the formula, the Zeiss Formula, with the world, for free.
You can find the Zeiss Formula online at the website of The Chicago Metal Arts Guild.
Read about Susan and see her jewelry in this blog post:
The link at the end of that post will take you to the full page on the Zeiss Formula, where you can see pictures of the process and download the pdf.
I’m thrilled that Susan has shared this information and I look forward to trying it myself!
