This is my first attempt at using Beeswax. I took a 2 x 4 & did several layers of paint, using the darkest color for the underneath. I did try the crackle paste on top but did not work out so well but, that's ok. A little bit of sanding & I'm on my way to painting. I used Soft Gel Medium to transfer my drawing onto the wood & painted my Angel w/acrylic paints. For her wings I used Gold leaf paint. Then the fun part.... the wax, a little scary at first but I think she turned out nice.
