Woven Experiment No.69 - Wax drips

The melting idea has worked but is very very slow. It does however, if you don’t heat the wax too much, create beautiful little droplets that retain their shape whilst resetting. If the temperature is too high the wax runs and spreads too much when the droplet hits the surface of the plaster.

The result is a very interesting surface texture that highlights the simplicity of the carved piece within. The question is however, will this cast? Will the delicate texture be still visible once bronze?
