Sculpture Work in Progress

   The Eagle is being constructed in wax on a steel armature

Sculptures stand around my studio in wax  until I decide to have them cast in bronze.


Sprinting Hare is my latest work in wax, still in progress…

    I love this work to a folly. Will it stay like this? I work with wax and armatures and am looking for a way to seal them so they stay as is. Can you help with this technique?

      Hi Yolande
      Wax is wonderful to work with. It does last a long time but better to have molded and cast. A hot day, and the wax will slump on its armature, keeping it cold is the only way to preserve it i’m afraid, it also attracts dust..always work with dark wax, its very light absorbent.
