08 Joint Design Nº 253
This photo shows the area of the hip socket I am going to work on. I have a small piece of carving wax that I am going to use to fill in with. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I place the piece of carving wax where I want to fill in.
I use my wax pen to melt the piece of carving wax into the area I want to fill. I also melt the base carving wax that is under the piece of filler, so they both become as one. I use the balled-up cotton sock as a prop, to help hold the lower torso in place while I am working on it, and also to wipe my wax pen off on it.
After adding the filler carving wax, and letting it set up, I use the pottery tool to scrape excess carving wax away.
I still do not know if I am going to keep these sockets, but while I am thinking about it, I am also practicing working with my wax pen.
