Playing with Beeswax and Crayons



I have been playing with Beeswax and Crayons and having a ball!! This is my first time using a Canvas and I love it.. First I used Gesso and covered the Canvas. Then glued my paper down using Gel Medium. Then I added my Collage pieces with layers of Beewax over them. I took crayons and smudged the heated wax all over and then my iron to smooth it all out .. I also used a hot wax stylus tool.. Suz Weinberg has some great tutorial videos on using Beeswax and collages. All of my embellishments are stuck on the canvas with the beeswax. It's a great glue!! LOL

I wasn't sure I was liking this piece until I put the golden perfect pearls on and it somehow all came together. oh yeah and don't put your last embellishments like lace on until your totally done all all of the mediums will get on it.. I decided once the perfect pearls got on the lace that Yup that's what I wanted to do all along! NOT!! LOL


Michaels had a sale on Canvas so I bought 4 of these little ones.

I entered this in these challenges

  2. Robyn, that's beautiful - wish I could see it larger! I played with the beeswax once years ago in an altered book - it is really cool (yeah, people still say that). I really should dabble in it some more. Thanks for your inspiration!
