MORE CARVING
July 31st, 2008
someone asked after viewing the first days wax work if the wax was brittle...and could it break?

Yes, and the thinner it gets the greater the chance, so when applying much pressure while carving, I have it pressed against the hard flat tile surface. It is a hard wax so if scraping much away at a time it does require tool pressure to make headway. You may get some sense of it by the white skin areas around the pressure points (fingertips).
