3D figure sketches

a question in another thread about wax castings reminded me of these wax figures I use for quick modeling in life drawing and figure sculpture classes,

thought some of the figure sculpting folk may be interested

they're about 8 inches tall, a mix of microcrystalline and bees wax,
the wax is poured into a simple 2 part plaster mold which has been soaked in water. they set quickly (3-5 mins) and release easily, I usually pour about 20 at a time,
when dropped into warm water for 2 mins they become flexible and easy to
shape and manipulate , they can be carved and added to, and melted and re-used
they're great for life drawing sessions and quick maquettes,
