April Art Draw - Beeswax Collage (aka Should have gone to specsavers.........)

Oh boy oh boy have I been loving watching Hels Sheridan on C & C this week. All credit to the station they really gave her a chance to give the meltpot a work out and show us loads of inspiring stuff. So, being the owner of a meltpot that has been gathering dust for over a year I thought I would have a go. Sorted out my bits and pieces, got all my materials ready, found the project pan, googled to check the temp for the wax, put the wax in, fired up the meltpot, started brushing my wax...........
er, that's not right, it's all sticky. What is going on?

Cue blond moment of mega proportions. (I blame the hairdresser, these highlights are supposed to hide my grey bits not my common sense).

Here is my pot of wax.

Except of course it isn't wax.

It's UTEE Flex.

Ooops. Don't do this at home folks.

Well, half an hour later we were ready to rock and roll again. and here it is. My little beeswax project inspired by Hels although almost certainly not as accomplished. (You really can't see the bits where I added the Flex.....)

This is the giveaway for April, if you want to be in with a chance of 'winning' leave a comment before 9.00 pm on Monday April 29th. International players welcome, please feel free to link from your own blogs (if you let me know you have I'll put you in the draw twice).

Thanks for stopping by!!

Blonde moment or no blonde moment you have done a fantastic job on this. It is so pretty and it's great to know that the melt pot is now in use. Lovely

This is lovely. Thanks for the chance to win. I published a link on my blog. I don't own a melting pot and have done nothing with beeswax. Who knows, maybe I will want to start.
