"Handy" Wax Art, Yankee Candle, Williamsburg, Virginia



We watched this girl get a wax hand sculpture made at the Yankee Candle store in a very interesting process. They covered her hand with a coating solution, had her strike the pose she wanted, then repeatedly dipped her hand alternately in melted wax and ice water to set it. After a number of dippings, they peeled the wax off like a glove. She was then able to color it as she wished. The top photo shows a completed "hand" made wax sculpture.

The end result looks like something out of a horror movie, but I bet it's fun to do. Happy weekend you two!

I agree it looks fun to do and how unique...couldn't be worse than sticking your feet in warm (hot?) wax...there was some kind of therapeutic foot thing you did that with a few years ago!
