Finishing Wax MedalsPosted: December 17, 2015
It turns out that my mould was actually salvagable. Through a lot of cleaning the owl has turned out rather well with only minor air bubbles that I can fill in and the face side seems to get better with each pour of wax as the tiny silicone strands are caught in the wax and pulled out the mould.
After coming in over the first week of Christmas break i was able to get a number of passable wax pieces, which I could then join and begin carving in the edge detail with a very fine pin. I was able to produce 4 high standard pieces. Just in time for making my tree so I could begin the dipping process after christmas.
