o there we were on a safari,

jar-of-bees

jar-of-beesIn search of the finest bees wax that one could find. "Not!"

jar-of-beesIf you stop by HERE you can read her post you about the beginning of our adventure, and see Joyce's work.

Bees Wax

jar-of-beesExperimenting in bees wax is really interesting, It's not something you can plan really, The accidents create wonderful effects. So adding a bit of Perfect Pearls to highlight, and then buffing to shine adds just the finishing touch.

jar-of-beesI added a bit of vintage ribbon to the back to be able to hang this one.

Wowsers, this is very cool!

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

I never use bees wax - it's too much of a mess for me LOL.

But I love it when I'm in a workshop and people are working with it - it smells SO good!

Your "waxed" flowers are just beautiful!

Vee said...

How lovely! Now I'm off to read the other side of the story.

OOOHH! Karen they came out so beautifully! I can't wait to show Katelyn "Princess Serendipity". She will be so excited. She talks about helping on our "art" all the time. I think we have found a little kindred spirit. I think that she is going to be my little protege.

Karen, these are exquisite. How I long to have an ART DATE with someone like you! Blessings to you, Anita

Kathleen Grace said...

Very cool! I like the shine and texture you got with the wax. I always learn something new here:>)

Terri Morse said...

Hi Karen! Wow! You've really gotten me excited about beeswax collage. A few months ago, I bought a melting pot and some beeswax but I've yet to experiment. Time to get out the stash of Pearl-ex powders and melt some wax! I love the effect of the powders with the wax. Thanks for the inspiration!

Nessimonster said...

Wow! The wax creates a very finished effect. I just love it! Thanks for always sharing your beautiful creations!
