Beautiful Beeswax...

Had a fun day today. I finally started the magazine article that is due Monday..!!! I know. I know, but its normal to me. I work better under pressure, lmao.. The subject was Beeswax and the brief was bright and cheerful. Now Beeswax is not normally known for being bright, so the challenge was on. Ranger do 2 types of Beeswax, the normal neutral colour which gives a lovely amber glow perfect for nostalgic and vintage projects. But they also do a white Beeswax that gives a clear effect. This enables you to have the gorgeous buff of Beeswax without discolouring the brightness of the project. Perfect for what I had in mind.

I melt the Beeswax granules in the melting pot.

The smell of melting Beeswax is so calming and comforting.

So here's some sneaks from the article.

So all I need to do now is write it all up..!!!
