Well, I'm not offended by it or anything!  I thought you might come back with some explanation about how these strands go down to a microscopic scale or something.  But, your comparison to the 3D Kaleidoscopic Folding System gives it some fractal context for me, which makes it easier to understand/appreciate.

I mostly just wanted to make the "post the params" joke.   evil

Being that it's in your own gallery, and not - say - in a software-specific gallery, and given that it absolutely looks like it has a fractal texture as you said, I have no problem with it.

This isn't deviant art.  We don't get all upset if something is only tangentially related to the subject at hand.  So long as the relationship is clear!

Obviously this can be abused, but we try to be more open than places that disallow such things.

Post the params, please.

But seriously, how is this a fractal?  Can I post a ball of yarn?    fiery

Umm. Well, I'm flabbergasted. Didn't think there would be any controversy over these images. I honestly thought they bore a striking resemblance to the 3D Kaleidoscopic Folding System fractal.

I still think they bear a striking resemblance to the 3D Kaleidoscopic Folding System fractal.

I thought people would like to see a real-world example of something they perhaps might have thought exclusive to digital/mathematics.

If you think a picture of a ball of wool exhibits fractals properties I see no reason why you should not post it if that's what you want to do.

I used an old baked bean tin sat in a saucepan of boiling water. The tin needed weighing down. But yes, this method is melts the wax slowly, is quite safe as long as the water is topped up if needed. I did also use so wire to hook the tin but the tin never really got that hot that it burnt my fingers (which are used to handling hot things... like plastic).

Just have a care  -  Melt wax slowly, or else it will catch on fire!!

Especially if you're melting a larger amount.  VERY Flammable stuff   fiery

@Sockratease, That's interesting, I will definitely be having a go at that  grin

Incidentally, the material came from a machine molding plastic buckets  shocked

Looks like my old Wax Sculptures!   afro

I'd melt wax, and dump it into a bucket of water.

Very similar textures - except mine had flat bottoms from floating up and spreading out.
