Beeswax - Oh My!

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with beeswax. (I attended the second day of Cyndi's Mes Amis d'Art: Wine, Women and Song event in which Cyndi taught us how to use this product.)

I'm always excited by the prospect of working with something new and adding it to my artwork; working with beeswax was invigorating. This is a product that was so simple to use, but one which created an amazing effect.

What I found to be the most challenging aspect of this product was being careful not to apply too much of it onto one section. I found that if I did, it created a layer that was too thick, which then made the artwork underneath difficult to see.

If you've never played with this product before, I encourage you to do so as soon as you can. I guarantee that you will greatly enjoy it!
