Innocent
Aaah beeswax! Just having a Homer moment there. OK I don't eat it (honestly) but I really enjoy working with it. For a start it smells so good, like honey, and there's something magical about the way it goes clear when you melt it and then cloudy again when it cools. It's also slightly unpredictable. You can't be too sure of how a piece is going to look when it's finished, there's an element of serendipity about the process. I like that. Here's a collage I finished last night which I put together with beeswax, available in my
eBay store for a few days.
