I just realized that I somehow missed posting my bird in wax form. So here it is, my lovely bird, while I was still carving it out of wax. After this I split it in half, hollowed it out, and cast it in silver. And then I made a rubber mold of it, made a lot more wax versions, and cast them all in silver, too.
Next up, some finished happy birdies! Yes, I’m overly excited about this one. It’s just such a lovely bird - very tactile and wonderful to hold in your hand. I love portable sculpture!
