In hand-carving, artists carve the wax with hand tools based on a drawing. In the wax sculpting method, an artist not only carves but adds intricate details by applying warm wax to the piece, going back and forth until the artist is satisfied. Computer-based modeling - A designer designs the model in computer-based software and prints it from a 3D printer that uses wax as a cartridge. To craft a clay or wax model a mold is to be made and the melted wax of desired thickness is filled into it. The wax shell is filled with a mixture and is put through a heating process. The art of making wax models has existing seen ancient ages in today's time there are numerous museums that contain wax statues of famous personalities, by measuring their features of the body, and sometimes it's just made from the reference of photographs.
