Small Poodle at Large | Dog Blog | Paws and CraftsWhen creating art with dog imagery, the sky is the limit.

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.
