I’m finally taking a crack at the Odyssey 18” flowering lotus (T344). As we know, this beast has 1,792 pieces, and will take hours off my life. I built the 10” Worden system wisteria previously, so I have some experience.
I have some questions that I’d like to toss out to the pros here.
1. I have to use tacky wax, but I’m concerned that I’m never getting this off the mold. That will be a lot of wax. Any concerns on that? Is there a good alternative? I could do 4-5 inches down and then tack it and then cut them and tack another 4-5.
2. I usually attach the pieces to the mold as I cut them, but I’ve been told by some not to do that. I hate to cut all the pieces and then put them on the mold, only to find they were a bit too big or a bit too small.
3. Any other concerns with a project of this size?
Thanks a real lot and I’m glad I found this site either way! Spiff
