Today I did some scraping to smooth the upper torso. I can fill shallow areas with the carving wax shavings, that result from scraping. I place the shavings where I need to fill, then burnish them with the paring knife. The burnishing compresses the shavings and fills the are that needs to be filled. In this photo, you can see the burnished wax due to the lighter color. I do not use any heat when burnishing. Click the image to enlarge it.
