Smoothing Wax

Wax can be smoothed by blowing the flame of an alcohol lamp gently over the surface. Put the piece in the refrigerator often to keep the heat from building up in the wax. Freezing wax makes it easier to smooth with very fine sandpaper or steel wool. Nylon stocking may be used to smooth wax. Wax may also be wet sanded with very fine sandpapers. Always practice the technique on a test piece of wax first, before applying the technique to your BJD. This post is in response to a question asked on a BJD making forum.
