Carving Wax Test Doll Gets Out
Today I worked on Carving Wax Test Doll's upper torso. Mainly, I used the paring knife to smooth some places by scraping, and used the shavings from smoothing, to burnish carving wax into slight depressions. I use the edge of the knife to burnish the carving wax. This burnishing does not require the alcohol lamp. It seems that pressure alone is enough.
Later today, Carving Wax Test Doll got out of the studio to sit on the couch in the screened-in porch. She was played with by my Best Friend.
I know she is just a Test Doll, but seeing my Best Friend play with her, moving her around, posing her in different positions, made me feel good. Carving Wax Test Doll is my Zen master.
