Wax Resist and Watercolor....

This was a day of experimentation!!!! While cleaning up the studio (I've been such a good girl) I uncovered my batik supplies! So i decided to devote the afternoon to play.....complete play...no ideas in mind at all...really a lot of fun to do once in a while!


Started with an unfinished watercolor, and painted over parts with bees wax....then more watercolor....


Started with a watercolor....found my Batik wax pen thingy...(i know that's not the right name)...and drew and dripped (accidentally...and then on purpose) with the hot wax.


Watercolor, then used a black crayola crayon on top of the paper that was sitting on a food warming tray turned up high...paper gets rather warm!

I quite like the pear - it will make a great card, I don't have a tjanting tool (the wax pen thingy) but I might have to play too! If the weather misbehaves nxt week, we could all play =)

I don't think I want to bring the thing...It's rather messy. I had wax all over the place...
When I'm thinking...I sort of forget what's in my hands... Like a hot dripping wax thing! Not as bad as the torch in a jewelry class I took... I lit the table on fire during my thinking! LOL
