A while ago I mentioned a link to Thealie http://lemixdethealie.blogspot.com/ such an inspiration with loads of techniques to try out. In one of her more recent tutorials she used regular candle wax which she stamped and then painted. This is my first attempt, an ATC which I worked on as soon as the kids were gone this morning, did I mention the hols have finally come to an end!I was quite surprised at how many layers of paint the wax took. I'll try this technique again perhaps with Adrionack inks or slightly brighter Acrylics.
Oh, it's lovely.
great work! it came out beautifully!
I'm so inspired Margaret, I'm going to try it myself! Yay for you - the holidays are over!!
Wow! Love this!! The colours look perfect. Love the wax effect.
Beautiful texture here. Thanks for the link. I am off to check it out.
