Arabian wax sculpture by akuinnen24 Arabian wax sculpture by akuinnen24
Here is the first sculpture I made with Babybel cheese wax. It's a pretty fun medium to work with because it's easy to move once it warms up but when you let it cool it's strong enough to stand. This one is about the size of a Breyer Stablemate.

I cannot believe you used Babybel wrapping. Absolute win. :D (also I have to try it)
These are amazing!!
How many Baybels did you have to consume to have enough wax for one stablemate scale horse :XD:

Thank you! :D They were really fun to make, and surprisingly easy!
The stablemate size took a little over a pack, so now whenever my family has a Babybel cheese they save the wrappers. XD I'd love to see anything you make with them! I think it's much easier than clay since they never get too hard or brittle to re-shape. :)

Awesome idea to use the cheese wax. I never would have thought of that.
