Jennifleur – working in the wax

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA‘Jennifleur’ is loaded into my boot, clay for ballast. We’re on our way to Bronze Age Sculpture Casting Foundry in the Docklands. Thank goodness for SatNavs. The sculpture arrives safe and sound. I say my goodbyes to ‘Jennifleur’. The foundry now make the mould of the portrait then cast wax into the mould. Two weeks later I am back to ‘check’ the wax. I spend an enjoyable few hours in the Foundry’s wax room, fiddling with the wax sculpture. With their team’s help, the sculpture is positioned to reflect the pose. ‘Jennifleur’ is ready for casting in bronze. The alchemy begins.
