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.
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,
