Experimentation with wax and water/controlling the wax

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Since I have decided to only use the one character in my 3d piece, I have began to use the other mannequin head for experimentation. I first explored the effect of hot water on wax. I first dripped some wax on the subject them placed a section of the mannequin head in the hot water. The results were as expected, the wax that was submerged melted. And melted quickly. I then abandoned the experiment and just placed the head in the water, as it floated a side of the face was submerged under the water. The wax then created the shape of the mannequin head this can be seen below. I found this quite interesting. The ultimate conclusion to these studies was that I couldn’t control the wax as well as I would have hoped.
