I wanted to try coating an image using bees wax. I had seen this done in a Stampington magazine and loved the effect.
I stamped the image using a water resistant black ink. Then I colored it using watercolor pencils and a water brush. I sponged the edges with distress ink.
I heated up the beeswax in the melt pot and dipped my image in the pot. I used my tweezers and had to rotate half way through to get wax over the entire surface. After it was coated I laid it down to let it cool. Then I heated it up with the heat gun to move the wax and dabbed up excess wax with baby wipes.
After that it was just layering and distressing the edges. I also highlighted the main image with glitter and white gel pen.
