Sculpture Studio Update

I started dipping my wax head in the ceramic slurry and thought I would post pictures of my progress.
I had some troubles with my wax head. It was too hot or something when we poured the wax into the plaster mold and because of that there were tons of small bubbles under the surface. As I heated and smoothed the wax more bubbles were uncovered. It took me a long time to try and fix this problem.
