I very much enjoy this idea, it's very creative. The wax gives it a sort of depth and texture and it really makes the beholder wonder if it's a real hand. :)

It's very wonderful and yet slightly scary because of the wax and the lit candle, it makes me think of Wax Man... a man made entirely out of wax, and he would terrorize children (community scary story) But the wonder is that the candle is still lit as you are holding it.

Overall this is a great concept and i enjoy the sepia tone :) Great job! I'd give you an A

This photo is very interesting. I love the idea; it's definitey one that I haven't seen before. So Kudos for the idea, and being unique to your own art :) Now I love this because the wax provides an immaculate amount of intricate texture and details. my only complaint would be maybe it could have been a little sharper as well, only because of the texture theres just so much going on detail wise. If it was a little sharper, perhaps each individual detail and aspect of the photo could have been accentuated a little more. However its still an extremely creative idea. two thumbs up! :)

I found this in the thumbshare forum and thought it was the hand of a monster or something like that :lol:
I really like the idea and makes me think of the hardships that are associated to good things (although I may be reading too much into it)
Anyway, nice work :la:

it was to start but got used to it in the end, it was just an initial burn when the wax first touches the skin then eases off :)

How on earth did you prepare for this shot, is the wax touching the subject's hand paraffin wax or some other sort? Candle wax just seems like it would be too painful!

Anyway, quite the captivating image!

When I opened the page for your profile, this was the first thing I noticed. And I thought, "WOW!"

I love the monotone and choice of color. It must have taken a long time to melt wax and cover you hand that way to create the layers, waves, and drips. I love that texture too! It's a beautiful photo. I like the concept. There could also be a message and/or a story told with this photo, but I guess that is up to the viewer's imagination.
