Here is an update on the wax sculpting of the Macaw Master. I am starting to add some detail to the feathers. I also made some subtle changes to the body posture. I am having trouble sculpting the feathers because putting the slightest pressure on the piece causes the bird to break off from the base. When this happens, much detail is lost because the piece has to be melted back together. Working with wax can be a real challenge sometimes. The piece is about 60% done.
I hope to have this Macaw done in time for the Chicago International Show. I will post more updates in the near future.
Update: Here is the finished piece:
There has been a feature story about my work just published in American Miniaturist Magazine, available at most miniature and hobby shops.
Thanks for reading.
