Will She Do What I Want?
This wax is difficult to photograph. Anyway she is more detailed than the photo shows. About 30mm high. Tomorrow or the next day I'll cast her. I don't like casting original waxes in 18ct gold. It sometimes gives me trouble, so I first make a silicone mould of her and then cast into 18ct. That way I got a backup, just in case the cast goes wrong. Believe me, that has happened more that once and it REALLY pisses me off if an original is screwed up. Things become airborne and the most unseemly language is loudly heard...............
I use a microscope when I put her face and hands and feet details on. And lots of light.
