Too stiff and brittle for hand modeling
from Boulder, Colorado
I wanted to use this wax for hand modeling of originals, which would then be invested in plaster and melted out to make lost wax castings. By hand modeling I mean squeezing, folding and working the wax with the hands to make a sculpture in the same ways you would use clay. This wax is much too stiff and brittle for hand modeling, although I expect it could be carved with tools. It is rigid at body temperature and higher. At 110 degrees F even thin sheets still break when bent and the wax does not stick to iself, so pieces cannot be joined without melting the mating surfaces first. When a heating pad failed to make this flexible enough to shape with my hands I finally tried warming it on a hot plate. Just before the wax goes molten it can be worked by hand for a moment but by then it's also very sticky and forms a thick coating on fingers which has to be peeled away later. Cool just a few degrees and it's brittle again. In short, this wax is either molten or rigid with no plastic stage in between.I may still be able to use this wax by melting it fully and pouring into silicone molds to make patterns for lost wax investments. If so, my money will not be totally wasted. I will not buy this again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
