A Bit of Creatiity

As some of you may know I enjoy spending time experimenting with creative arts. The latest experiment included using rubber stamps with melted wax to create a type of oil resist.
The process begins with the melting of wax crayons. I usually choose to work with complimentary colors. I use a frying pan lined with heavy tin foil and melt the wax directly onto the tinfoil. When the 'puddle' of wax is pleasing to my eye I apply a piece of card stock in order to make my print.

The solid wax prints are beautiful.

Working with the stamps in the wax was interesting. It didn't work quite how I thought but I did like the results in the end.
