I am looking to make a sculpture out of wax. something which i dont have to cast as it is not neccesary that it lasts a long long time (although i would like it to last a fair while).
I want to be ambitious and am attempting a half life size figure of Tom Thumb based on the secret adventures of tom thumb (something a bit more grim).
I am looking for ways to get a basic shape or bulk out the armature with as little cost as possible and without having to make a mould of any thing if possible.
I am also intrigued by the textures i could acheive by possible dripping wax onto an armature but again have no idea what sort of armature would work without too much cost.
I have only ever used water and oil based clays and plaster to sculpt in before so really am a complete beginner in wax.
