Stone Wave

Today, I spent a couple of hours sanding and polishing the stone wave piece and it feels good to get something finished. It certainly seems like I've been starting more things than finishing them lately. I took it along to meet the other members of Sculptors Queensland this week which was a good night. Plenty of friendly help and advice. It was suggested I try Bees wax or Carnauba wax to finish the polishing stage. I'd heard of Carnauba wax but hadn't been able to track it down and I was starting to think it may be just a north american thing (god bless the internet) but really I was just looking in the wrong place. This piece is finished with Gilly Stephenson's Carnauba Polish and though it sounds lame to say, it looks much better in real life. Great shine.
