Here is the first sculpture I made with Babybel cheese wax. It's a pretty fun medium to work with because it's easy to move once it warms up but when you let it cool it's strong enough to stand. This one is about the size of a Breyer Stablemate.

Lol, it my mom's cheese, otherwise I could never afford to buy that many! She always saves the wax now. :D Good luck with your creations!

I cannot believe you used Babybel wrapping. Absolute win. :D (also I have to try it)
These are amazing!!
How many Baybels did you have to consume to have enough wax for one stablemate scale horse :XD:

Thank you! :D They were really fun to make, and surprisingly easy!
The stablemate size took a little over a pack, so now whenever my family has a Babybel cheese they save the wrappers. XD I'd love to see anything you make with them! I think it's much easier than clay since they never get too hard or brittle to re-shape. :)

Awesome. :D Well I get through enough cheese so it ought to be do-able! I may try it!!

Awesome idea to use the cheese wax. I never would have thought of that.

Thank you. :) I just randomly tried sculpting a horse leg one day, and then I eventually made a whole horse.

Well it was a very innovative idea!

Haha, yep! It looks like a lot of people have tried making sculptures with it. It's surprisingly easy to work with. :)

Thanks, lol. :) At one point I tried sculpting a horse leg out of it, and then I thought I'd try doing a whole horse.
