Hi folks, finally putting my money where my mouth is and giving the animation wax a test drive.
Here's a short loop illustrating its elastic properties. The way it moves is more like flesh than traditional plasticine because it has some give to it and doesn't have to be constantly resculpted. I basically inverted the formula and created something with working properties that are the exact opposite of Van Aken and other clays.
For example: It doesn't lose pigment and stain fingers and other surfaces, can be smoothed with water, is lighter weight, becomes stickier as it ages instead of more crumbly, can be melted in a double boiler, and can be embossed with a tool without tearing up the surface.
