08 Joint Design Nº 65
The lower right arm needed some filling. I used my wax pen. Click on any image to enlarge it.
When I fill a hole with my wax pen, I melt the base first, then melt additional carving wax into the melted base, using a piece of scrap carving wax. This is so the hole and the filler are completely fused together.
I use my paring knife to scrape the excess carving wax off, trying to match the surrounding surface form.
Once I have added and subtracted carving wax to all the holes, I use a small piece of sandpaper to smooth the area.
The actual work is practice, practice and more practice: adding, subtracting, and smoothing repeatedly. ~Martha Armstrong-Hand
