I’ve never done much carving-- I’ve always constructed my pieces.
Back when I was working strictly with ceramics, I did a lot of bas
relief carving in porcelain, and I liked carving that, but I dislike
the “bounce” of wax, the sort of rubbery quality.
I have some designs in mind now that would need to be carved. I may
actually carve them in porcelain instead of wax or metal, but it may
be too brittle to withstand the molding process. So here’s the
question. Is there any type of carving wax that carves more like
ceramic-- that is, hard or even brittle but not flexible or rubbery?
Thanks for any help!
