When creating a one-of-a-kind piece, I usually take a cold RTV (room temperature vulcanizing) mold of the master wax pattern, inject wax into the mold, and cast the injected wax. Although you can count on the master wax pattern getting damaged in the molding process, doing this is good insurance against a possible failed casting. Afterward, you can modify and cast the master wax pattern, or mold it again.
