Waxworks

A couple of progress shots of the latest projects I’m working on…pink wax tubes and blobs. The wax comes in 4″x4″ sheets that I’m trying to thin down using a ceramic sculpting tool and eucalyptus oil. You can see in the image below the marks left by the tool on some of the tubes and to the left, what’s been removed from the sheet surface; curly flakes that may become a project themselves some day. And the blobs, I’m loving the blobs, a couple of which have been poked with a sewing pin as you can see.  I’ve rubbed each piece in the palm of my hand with the oil which softens and thins the sheet into these subtle curved bits. It’s a soothing process and the room smells of lovely fresh eucalyptus for a change, instead of toxic, smoking wax. Stay tuned.
