Hello everyone, thanks for popping in. I do hope you are all well. I've been busy with lots posts for the design teams I am on, (checkout the sidebar) but this one is for me. I was so inspired by Paper Artsy's new challenge and in particular Lin Brown's Post which you can see here. So I got out the wax! I will enter this into the challenge.
Using the heated stylus thingy and pointy tip I started to draw my design on the waxed board. I used white and silver wax.
So I got my design and I loved creating it, where I went wrong, was when I used the heat gun to fuse the layer. I could have laid a couple of layers of clear wax first, which would have helped the coloured wax stay in the areas I wanted it. Instead, because I was heating the layer of coloured wax it moved everywhere.
Here are a couple of shots close up. I loved what the wax did, but it was not what I intended. I do love that that there is an unpredictable quality working with wax, as you are never sure of the end result.
And this is finished except it hasn't cooled which is why it is so milky white.
Once it was completely cold I gave it a good shine with a soft cloth
