08 Joint Design Nº 494




Today I filled-in the slots on the carving wax hands. I started by cutting pieces of scrap carving wax to fit the slots. I used the wax pen to weld the scrap carving wax into the slots. Click on any image to enlarge it.






I used a steak knife with a sharp, thin blade to trim excess carving wax from the filled-in slots. I used the paring knife to remove carving wax to match the existing surface of the ball joint.






I smoothed the filled-in area with 150-grit sandpaper.



The actual work is practice, practice and more practice: adding, subtracting, and smoothing repeatedly. ~ Martha Armstrong-Hand (4 July 1920 - 22 Ocotber 2004)
