I was wondering if anyone could please share their technique or tool
of choice for carving letters in wax. In regards to the wax tool of
choice, do most people use a picker? A scraper? A scribe? I have
different wax tools but being self taught, I have never actually seen
the carving of letters demonstrated. I have figured out how to carve
shapes and designs, but with letters being rather small and detailed,
I cannot picture how this should be done.
I would greatly appreciate any advice on this or a link to a photo
or video of this being done.
I would think that perhaps you don’t use wax tools at all and
actually use engraving tools so they have the sharp angles and are
small for details?
