Beeswax

The last time I did beeswax was several years ago and it's surprising how many people haven't tried it yet but definitely want to give it a go! The classroom always smells so wonderful during a beeswax class as I use the proper beeswax rather than the sanitised bleached version that some of the stamp companies sell. So it has it's natural colour and smell...yum! I add colour by using cheap, kids crayons. I also like to use my little Clover Mini Iron but you can also use the Suze Weinberg Mini Iron and even those little craft irons (as long as it doesn't have holes in the base).

"Wings"...
"Sometimes I Pee"...

"Life is Change"...


More beeswax atc's will follow as I do the next 3 classes. The following ones are from the previous class - Burnt Distress Stains.

"Fracture"...


"Dirty"... (this quote is from one of my two more "risque" quote sheets, love the pic...mmmmm)


"Delicate"...

Beeswax is something I really want to try - have bought the wax, and even a second project pan for my melt pot in readiness, just haven't gotten around to actually giving it a go yet
