Working with Deep Detail wax


#1

Margie Mersky was kind enough to send me a sample of her Deep Detail
wax despite the fact that most of my wax carving starts with cnc. It
didn’t mill quite as well as cnc blue or ferris green wax, slightly
worse for impacted chips. But it is much nicer than either for
seeing details while hand carving. Blue wax is awful to see, (human
eyes focus best on green in the middle of the spectrum) and ferris
green too dark and brittle for my tastes. Deep Detail is a much
lighter shade of green and about midway between in hardness and
brittleness. I liked it enough to invest in a couple of pounds for
further experiments. No commercial ties except she now has a bit of
my money :wink:
