6mm (or 5/16") wax rod needed for sculpting

Hi! New to the forum and also lost wax sculpting. Have done some clay sculpting and plaster molding but now want to do some small bronze casting. My project is to do a wood bird carving which will have cast bronze legs and feet. I am trying to locate 6mm, or 5/16" dia. round wax rod that I can use for the leg parts that I can cut some texture into. Could someone please suggest where I can find this size wax rod? I have looked everywhere.

Thanks so much! Mario

Unfortunatelly I can't help you with direct information, but on otherhand I will point out something for you. The wax very easily formable (with lighter warm impact, up til direct melting). So if you obtaining some wax (any kind and size) you can form for yourself the right diameter bars or rods how ever you want. :-)
