Here is the update on my show wax preparation…

For a first try at cleaning wax to this level, and moulding it, I don’t think it was that bad. I need to control the cooling down period more to prevent the wax shrinking too much in the mould, and losing shape – you can see in the last photo above how the sides of the bricks have bowed inwards. These would be good enough to sell, but not for entering a show – well, not if I want to win a prize, that is.

I have some time to get a better result, as the show is not until the 22nd September, and entries will be accepted right up until 10:00 that morning.

I’d better inform my wife that I’ll be taking up room in the kitchen for a bit longer…
