It's been a busy few days in the wax room. I've assigned myself the challenge of doing as many techniques as I know with the wax and of seeing what comes of that. Of course then you develop favorite things and get in a groove but my intention was just to experiment.
So what you are looking at is this, that and the other. The first several use stencils a lot. Technical advice is welcome here. If you have suggestions or helpful directions feel free to pipe up.
I have a book full of cut stencils so I ruined several with the wax. Thought they were about the least successful of the bunch but here they are anyway.
ha ha. My DH thinks the silhouette above needs a face. I shouldn't make fun; maybe you think so too.
I'm really getting into transparent layers here. These are among my favorites.
The last two use transfers, tissue inclusions, a variety of scratching, filling and messing about.
I'm a busy little beaver, aren't I? The magnolias, lilacs and rhododendrons are blooming and yet I keep my nose to the hot plate.
OK, last one for awhile. Studio smells of heavenly beeswax and creative fervor. What I am not doing is writing class proposals. Eeep. Put on thinking cap. Brain contains nothing but wax. What to do? Maybe skip 2009 and just enjoy taking classes from others. Aieeee, so much to think about. I can't take it.
DH senses my dismay and brings me a life-saving draught. Sweet hay-soos a cold beer sure tastes good on a sweet May evening. Thanks for humoring me and stopping by. Wait! Give me a hug. Thanks, okay, now you can go. xoxoxoxoxxo
