An unlikely combination, I’ll admit. This is tough stuff, this dark red-brown, sticks to everything medium! My dentist… or rather… my hygienist gifted me with a couple of dental tools which are very helpful with really tiny things on the small pieces. Especially helpful as they can be heated to melt just the smallest area of wax and make a tiny change. I’m not there yet. The pieces are rough but starting to take more of the graceful shapes I’m hoping I can achieve. Photographing them is also helpful from an evaluation point of view. I do see how I’d like to change a gesture… reduce or build up an area. Love the learning process and the new challenge. Can a full size mermaid sculpture feature for the garden be far away? Hmmmm…. better finish these that fit in the hand first! Deal!
