Default beeswax

It is so easy if you have the right pan. One of those small electric skillets is perfect.The little crockpots don't get hot enough! Get the beeswax to the liquid stage then you can use a small natural hair brush like a color duster to apply the hot wax to your paper surface. Layer paper to this hot wax base then apply more wax over the top. Or...if you have some long tweezers dip your small collage pieces directly into the wax and layer onto your paper.
My Vintage Greeting card book has full instructions on a couple of projects and my exploring Art Materials DVD covers a mixed media style for beeswax collage.
