Never Mind The Beeswax...

...heehee... I have been wanting to use that for such a long time!   Today I have another sample from the Melt Art Pick of the Day to show you.  This one is using beeswax and UTEE in a couple of different ways.  I am hoping I get time to show you live on air how I made it as it is one of my demo samples...  



I covered the small rectangular MDF plaque with paper and then spread a layer of beeswax over it... once that had set, I added a few more blobby bits of beeswax around the edges and once that had set, I lightly dabbed Mica Powder onto it... and then buffed it to get a lovely deep shine.  The flowers are made from the six petal flower on the Button Florals stamp set (LOVE this set) and I dipped them into clear UTEE for the Faux Porcelain look.   The heart was made by pouring UTEE onto the cute Hexagon Script stamp and popping a cookie cutter over to make the shape.  Finally, the ickle Media Mixage Hat Pin (how cute is that!)  was popped into the Melt Pot on a piece of craft sheet, once the metal was hot, I sprinkled gold UTEE into it and then added a couple of granules of white UTEE... a quick swirl with a pin to marble the molten UTEE and voila, done!


I hope you managed to see the shows last night and love the new goodies as much as me.  Don't forget, if you have got a question you would like me to answer, please do email into the shows as we are going to get as many questions answered live on air... and as ever, there will be giveaways for each show :O))   Thanks for looking, have a great day!  TTFN

Hi Hels loved the shows and the demo's, especially the beeswax, so useful. Did write in but didn't manage to get read, but never mind. I bet you will be having a good earned rest today after all the time you put in x
