I'm still working on samples for the classes in San Diego. Just a week and a half now! YIKES!!! I'm moving part of my studio up to the main floor this week and the place is just in a total mess. So tonight, I found the bin with the beeswax in it and decided to experiment a little:
I added some blue "to dye for" to white beeswax. Melted it, took a paint brush and painted it onto white glossy cardstock. While still warm, I stamped into it. Then I poured some into a silicone heart shaped ice cube tray. Amazing how it's transparent when thin and totally dark when thick.
Then I poured some out onto my craft sheet and stamped into it. If you stamp deep enough, it's transparent and here's how it looks with a white background:
And if you put it over black, it becomes a single color.
I enjoy playing with beeswax because you can stick anything into it. Here's one I did a few months back for a Ranger Design Team assignment. Just stuck things down into the warm beeswax, painted over the copy of the photo, even stuck a mini pencil in it:
Maybe tomorrow I'd better blog how to clean out your melting pot! I used 2 pots and 2 liner pans tonight, working on multiple techniques - sort of have a mess but decided it could all wait for morning!
