Painting with Wax

I had a class form my favorite store - Rubberstamp Fantasy. (Not you just love the name).  Sorry I digress I told a class from Rosemary Marino. It was called Painting with Wax and it was so fun.  It is all about textures and how you hold the craft iron.  It does make you think out sides of the box of backgrounds and how yu can use the image.
You take your craft iron and some encoustic wax and create texture backgrounds. The background that we practiced are following (the trick was how you hold the iron).  All the images were using glossy paper.

Here are two of the cards that I made during class.

Well - finally, a good use for an Iron! I wonder how people think up these techniques. Did someone have some wax too close to an iron one day .... makes you wonder.

Beautiful cards.

Oh wow, what a neat technique! The cards are awesome. My sister learned this technique several years ago. I will have to show this too her and see if she will dig up her iron and wax and teach me.
