Default How to go about this.

Hi Guys I was a beekeeper in a past life. In memory of this my wife commissioned a sculpture to make a figure of a beekeeper working. As the piece was being fired, the honeycomb slipped from the figures grasp and fell. The artist used natural honey comb to repair which is nowhere to scale and is not a permanent fix I now want to make a permanent repair using perhaps Fimo as the medium. To make the pattern for this I propose to carve from perhaps MDF. The attached photo shows the detail I want.Anyone able to help with how to go about this? The photo measures about 1 1/2 " but the detail I want is much closer perhaps 20% greater

Hi Lemuzz

I think the Fimo should work fine, I would use a Allen hex key,just press it into the fimo maybe with some spacers and 10 or so, tape in a bundle and then let setup and dry..then use it for the repair.. it's going to be tricky to copy the bee but with some Practice it should come out fine..I think

Just one more idea at one time I saw some light defuser covers that look about the same size, you may want to check out one of the lighting centers in your town..they where a light off color white almost like bees wax...
