To make this poured wax piece, I constructed four walls for the border (using strips of wax), made some barriers in different shapes in the middle, and then poured in mixtures of paint and wax. Later I ironed the surface and scraped some layers off the top. (Shavings shown below!)

In addition to the wax heap, I was fascinated by some of the individual curls of wax that the scraper produced.
