PAINTING & POURING WAX

Each section of the mould is carefully painted with hot wax to ensure a good reproduction of the texture of the original.

 

The mould is then closed up and filled with cooler wax.

 

This wax is then poured out, leaving a thin skin on the interior of the mould, approximately 4mm thick.

 

When the wax has cooled sufficiently, the mould is removed revealing a hollow wax replica of the original sculpture.
