08 Joint Design Nº 352
Today I worked over the upper right carving wax leg with my paring knife, then I did some sanding with 100 grit sandpaper to see how well it would work for sanding away small lines left from pouring the carving wax.
One of the nice things about sanding carving wax is that there is no dust. Because the talc is mixed with waxes to make the carving wax, the sandpaper just clogs up over time, and a fresh piece of sandpaper must be used. But there is no sanding dust. I like that. Click on the image to enlarge it.
The actual work is practice, practice, and more practice: adding, subtracting, and smoothing repeatedly. Martha Armstrong-Hand (1920-2004)
