07 Carving Wax Nº 6
Carving wax is tough enough to be test strung with round elastic doll cord. In the old photo below, Carving Wax Test Doll has 1.5mm round elastic doll cord from wrist to wrist, through the arm sockets in the upper torso. 3mm round elastic doll cord is ready to tension the head, torso, and legs. Click on any image to enlarge it.
Terminating joints, such as the feet and wrists have a pin through the ball. There is a slot cut into the ball. An s-hook is attached to the pin, and the other end of the s-hook is attached to the elastic.

Another view of Carving Wax Test Doll, tensioned with round elastic doll cord. She was under tension for many, many months. She was unstrung and restrung several times during that period of time. Different joints were tested. She did not crack or deform during that time, while under tension. Being able to test string a carving wax doll figure is one reason why carving wax doll parts are made.
