08 Joint Design Nº 363
The first thing I did was turn on my wax pen. The little Art Deco nightlight is my indicator light, letting me know that the wax pen is ON. The 600W Dimmer Switch inside the electrical box has a Push ON/OFF Rotary Dial. It takes a few minutes for the wax pen to warm up. I have it set to a point where it will melt the carving wax without smoking. If it smokes, it is too hot.
This is the spot that needs to be filled properly. It was uncovered while cutting the carving wax around the hip joint.
This is the spot after filling with the wax pen and a piece of scrap carving wax.
This is the spot after I have subtracted the excess carving wax from the area that was filled. I use my paring knife to subtract the excess carving wax.
