For this installment of Paws and Crafts, I want to share a Beeswax Collage, Ode to Two Good Dogs.
This piece combines ephemera, photos, stamps, paint, lace, metal, fabric, yarn, and copper tape. Once the collage is set, apply a layer of melted beeswax. Next, use a mini-iron to melt the excess wax and allow the collage underneath to re-emerge in its antiqued form.
You’ll see, Dogs, by the end of the process, the piece smells so good, it’s really hard not to lick it.
A beeswax collage is a beautiful way to create and honor the dogs in your life.
