DaVinci's daughter by sandpiper764 DaVinci's daughter by sandpiper764
Second attempt at traditional collage, and my first attempt at using beeswax to cover surfaces .. found out that beeswax can be difficult to work with. Added a digital texture over this, to try and hide the globs of wax.

The girl is from a Gia Russa 100% Whole Wheat Spaghetti box, the two squares (92D and 98D) are paint/texture samples picked up at the local hardware store, and the halo is a thermograph chart paper. Flowers are from various stationary at hand. I sandpapered the surfaces to try to add some real texture .

Hope you enjoy :)

It is more difficult than I had anticipated as well, but it's a lot of fun. Looking forward to what you come up with !

Thanks Chery :)

Lovely textures and muted colours.

The wax gobs are a pain - you can try ironing over the surface to melt them back in?

I can definitely give that a try. Thank you :)

Very cool! Laughing about the wax gobs. I know about that!

Thanks! I don't know if I'll try wax on a finished piece again until I get the hang of it :o ... may try premelting it, then brushing it on.

The thing I've learned about fusing wax layers is to have a heat gun at the ready. You brush the wax on, melt it, keep brushing, keep melting. With experience I can see this working really well, but right now for me, as a novice, it's definitely more theory than reality!
