Wax Painting

As promised yesterday, here is one of my wax paintings. I love doing them as they create beautiful textures on the card. They are made by melting wax onto a small iron (you can buy ones specially made for doing wax paintings) then smoothing it over a coated card. When you raise the iron, it leaves a rippled effect, like veins on a leaf. It is fascinating but easy to mess up! The dragonflies and birds were made using a heated stylus.
