The cups with the tops cut off. The paper cup will burn away and the wax behind it will melt out when it is placed in the burn-out kiln, leaving a hollow shell mold into which the bronze will be poured. Eventually, the shell will be broken away, leaving the bronze, one-off. This is the part that has confused many people. I hope it has become clearer now.
