Adding Carving Wax
I've been busy reading my new book, Pop Sculpture and the secrets of using a wax pen to add to carving wax have been revealed !!! The secret is just as I thought it was, and have been doing myself..... drip, drip, drip the wax, then scrape it to the form wanted. Evidently, this is not a technique that is suited to everyone. It is the technique that Martha Armstrong-Hand used to make her carving wax patterns for her BJDs, and it is the technique used by Tim Bruckner, the sculptor who wrote Pop Sculpture, . I use a 25W soldering iron as a wax pen.
