08 Joint Design Nº 49
The carving wax ball on the left has had some seam work done on it. Click on any image to enlarge it.
After working on the seams of the left carving wax ball, I did some sandpaper work with 100 grit sandpaper. Working on the carving wax with sandpaper is like working on the oil-clay figure with a rake. It shows where the low spots are. These two balls are positioned more or less the same way they came out of the same plaster mold, except the ball on the left has had some carving wax work done on it. All those fill lines on the ball on the right have disappeared with some sanding on the ball on the left.
The actual work is practice, practice and more practice: adding, subtracting, and smoothing repeatedly. Martha Armstrong-Hand
