08 Joint Design Nº 400




There is a very low spot beside the left breast that may be an undercut in the mold, if left unfilled. Click on any image to enlarge it.






I place some scrap carving wax in the low spot.






I use my wax pen to weld the scrap carving wax to the carving wax torso, making sure that I fuse the body and the scrap completely together.






I scrape the excess carving wax filler away, using my paring knife.






I sand the area with 60-grit sandpaper. I will be using finer and finer grits of sandpaper as I refine the carving wax doll parts.



The actual work is practice, practice and more practice: adding, subtracting, and smoothing repeatedly. ~ Martha Armstrong-Hand (1920-2004)
