I see that the silver material is an available option, and that they create it by using the lost wax method. Is it possible to receive the wax to make my own mold, or is there a process that someone has posted for making casts of their prints for creating jewelry etc...

Thanks,

Not at this time.
It's been discussed at length, and is a hot-topic item, but it's not an option yet.

To add to stonys comment, the problem is shipping. We would not be able to cost effectively ship the wax while preventing damage. The plan is to offer more castable materials. So keep on the look out for that. I found this post with a metal survey, but I believe there is another one specifically about castable metals
