08 Joint Design Nº 497
I am hoping that I will have a large enough block of time in the coming week to get back to making the foot mold. In the meantime, I am continuing to refine various carving wax doll parts. There is always something to do. I started out by placing a piece of scrap carving wax in the neck hole of the upper carving wax torso. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I used my wax pen to add carving wax and weld the scrap piece of carving wax into the hole.
I used the paring knife to subtract the excess carving wax from the neck hole, trying my best to match the surrounding surface.
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 October 2004)
