Allot of wax


#1

Kate, Thanks for the suggestion to use green Ferris Wax for repairs.
I have always used blue Ferris for my turning and engraving. I also
use blue for repair and as you say the consistencency of the repair
wax is not the same as new wax. I wax weld two blocks of ferris
blue to make a large piece of pottery. The joint has always been a
problem. The green was may solve the problem. the suggestion to
melt the base wax when you make a repair is very important. The
process is just like welding metal. Thanks again. Your Orchid Friend,
Lee Epperson

Hi Lee,

 I wax weld two blocks of ferris   blue to make a large piece of
pottery.  The joint has always been a problem. 

I’ve heard some folks say they’ve had success sticking blocks (&
small pieces too) of wax together with Crazy glue. Don’t know what
kind of wax or what kind of glue, but it might be worth a try.

Greetings Lee (creator of beautiful vessels), If you are carving with
Ferris Blue, I suggest you try the Ferris Purple for your repairs.
I’ve noticed going up one grade in hardness for repair wax gives the
best results. hth, Best Regards, Kate Wolf in wet and windy Portland,
