Encoustic Wax





I took a class a couple of weeks ago where you make cards using printed napkins and wax. It is hard to explain but we tore the napkins and then used beeswax to create a card. I am not good at explaining techniques. My teacher was Rosemary Marino . Now I am on a quest for printed napkins.
Recipe:
Printed Paper Napkins
Clear Beeswax
Colored Beeswax
Red Line Tape
Cardstock
Sorry for the bad pictures I need to learn how to use Photoshop Elements so I can edit and crop them. Maybe I will get a new camera for Christmas.
