Carving Wax Lower Arms




Carving Wax Test Doll has some lower arms.






The same 1.5 mm round elastic cord is being used. Showing the elbow joints.






I got three sets of lower arms from the moulage mold.



When I melt the carving wax from a cold start, it gets pretty hot.
So after all the chunks of carving wax have melted, I use some cold
chunks of carving wax to stir the mixture. This does two things;
one, it mixes the talc and the waxes together again, because the
talc has a tendency to settle to the bottom of the wax pot; two, it
also cools the mixture, because the cool chunk of carving wax that
I am using to stir the mixture with, gets smaller.
