This paper describes the conversion of dental tools into wax engraving tools, how they are held and how they are used.
Here are the results of using the engraving and background tools. The project is created in blue carving wax.The channel through the center of the bear will be inlaid with stones once the wax is cast and finished.
The holes in the channel were drilled in order to aid in hollowing the bear.
The saw tooth design on the back of the bear was engraved by the line engraving tool. The boundary of the stone channel was engraved first, with the line engraving tool. The wax in the channel was then recessed with the background engraving tool.
