Bees Wax......

Well after having an experimental day playing in my little craft room on Sunday I came up with this little number.....lots of mess with the beeswax, hmmmm not to sure if I was being a little heavy handed with the wax as I managed to get it everywhere, I think I spent more time cleaning down afterwards than I did splodging, scraping and painting it on, I think I got carried away as the layers were building up with images from Crafty Individuals, tissue paper from 7 Gypsies and lots of glimmer misting. I've only done 1 beeswax project before and that was with Lin at LB crafts so this was my first time flying solo, so to speak, after I had finished layering I brushed Perfect Pearls metallic powders to various parts and a tip I learnt from Lin was after dusting lightly remelt the wax for the powders to set in the wax.

Now the little bottle cap was made following one of the tutorials over at the Craft Barn wishing well tutorials last week......I like the idea that you just need to heat a little wax in the cap, add the image and then melt some more on top.....easy and very effective. The Eiffel tower is one of the 6 I made the other day......I'm so loving these and you will be seeing a few more Paris projects........I'm on the look out for a stamp with just the Tower on but big enough to see some detail of the metal structure, so if you knnow one give me a shout pleazzzze. The little postcard stamp from Crafty Individulas was coloured in with Prismas and distress ink and is so sweet although the text is English I think it lends itself for any occassion.

Hi
This is right up my stree - absolutely love this.
Beeswax is fun - I use a melt pot.
You mentioned an Eiffel Tower stamp. Here is a link for an Oxford Impressions plate. I have many Eiffel Tower stamps - this one is solely the structure, no landscape.
Wishes
Lynne
