look what i made!
« on: April 10, 2008, 08:26:26 PM »


i have been melting the wax from the cutout a couple of weeks ago.  this is a small bit of it.  much more to go.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

That is darn nice.

How many pounds?

How did you do it?(Double boiler, solar, etc)

i haven't weighed it yet.  i'll do it when i'm done with all.  i melted it over a double boiler through cheese cloth.  the wax melts into the water and then when it cools and shrinks it slides right out.
