Beeswax Collage

I've been working on class samples for the upcoming ArtForAll 2012 in Portland next week, where I'm teaching two classes. This event is hosted through atcsforall.com, my favorite mail art trading site.

One of my classes shares techniques with beeswax, tissue and paper napkins, showing the different effects you can achieve by how they are layered. I love how everything blends together when the beeswax is added. 


Here are a few of the 4x4 pieces I've created:




I'm linking up my "painting with papers" images to Paint Party Friday, where a variety of fabulous artists share their work each week. Thank you Eva and Kristin for hosting!

I absolutely am in love with the look of painting with papers. You take your fabulous art work and make it so unique though the design of the papers. Amazing outcome. Blessings, Janet PPF
