Chunky Beeswax










































































I foolishly let myself in for a chunky beeswax book that a lady in Australia is hosting. There is now wax everywhere. My melt pot was on overtime, because as usual I made some extras to keep.
I collaged the main page with backing papers, napkins and images, and then on some added flowers etc I then added some extra wax and stamped into it to give some texture, and brushed Perfect pearls on various parts, especially the textured bits.

These images are all beautiful Wendy - I love the translucent layers. It sounds a fantastic technique and I can quite understand that once you started, you couldn't stop! I haven't got a melting pot but am seriously tempted to get one.

How fabulous - they all look stunning.
I'm hosting a melt-pot play day soon so I expect my kitchen table may acquire a few waxy stains! I may get everyone to look here for inspiration!

Wow you have been busy Wendy and these are rather special! I have used beeswax but not quite on this scale lol. I love the layers you have achieved.
