The process of making the wax work bench starts by taking a silicone mold of a pre-existing work bench. Then the silicone is peeled back off the bench and brought to a work space. It is then sewn together at the ripped seams and braced for pouring wax into. The wax pulled from these molds are cropped, and tightened to fit the vision of the final presentation of the piece. The is a lot of back and forth to make sure the gaffer and assitant match up in the scene and line up with the blow pipe.
