The lost wax casting method is a process which captures the intricate details of an artist's original sculpture. First, a wax replica of the original is made and then dipped in liquid ceramic in order to create a ceramic mold. The ceramic shell is fired and as it bakes, the wax inside melts and is lost, thus the term lost wax. When the ceramic shell is removed from the heat, molten bronze is poured into it to create the final casting.

Once the casting has cooled, the outer ceramic layer is broken away, revealing the bronze sculpture inside. Various patinas may be applied to obtain the desired colorization and wax is applied to add protection to the lustrous finish.

There are other techniques and variations of the lost wax casting process, but they all involve the loss of the wax mold implied in the term 'lost wax'.
