my day at Pickleberry Crafts

and what a great day it was.
This is what I made!
A wall hanging  A lot of different techniques with wax [no not eyebrows or legs ] Jennie from 'Artistic Stamper '-  take a look at her blog, it is awesome!  She ran the workshop and we had a LOT of fun trying dofferent techniques with wax. That is my effort at the begining of this post. We could make books or, as in my case, a hang
Please note - wax can develope into FIRE - I did hope we might have firemen , but we were very careful and didn't need them - drat!!!!
We used paper napkins, stamps into the wax - heck that was hard lol
but we did that BEFORE lunch and just a few chocs and mini hot cross buns! Part waxing on the card, eeeeer we were alowed to go into the shop to find stuff to use [I need another mortgage!]  Dipping images into wax, swiping wax across the card.
The bird is a paper napkin, torn and dipped




getting there lol

The daisy is stamped into molten was on a heat matthis was very very difficult as the wax runs everywhere - yep in your lap if you are not careful! But the effect is stunning

Thats' it !!

If you haven't used a melt pot  I would say go for it. It is great fun and I will use mine more now even for moulds - we did that too ! Together with perfect pearls - no end to the possibilities
