This demo/talk is part of our Past Technique Takeaway series.
Date Recorded: Friday, May 7, 2021
In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of beeswax collage. Using natural filtered beeswax as adhesive, a crock pot and a mini quilting iron, I will show you how to build up layers and play with transparency using a collection of recycled and hand-painted papers, tissue paper, thread and other found objects.
Beeswax can be applied to a variety of surfaces but in this demo I will use wood panel. You can also dip dimensional items into melted beeswax, and then apply them to your artwork. Beeswax becomes more opaque as more layers are added. As you build up your coats, you will bring out the dreamy, soft-focus quality of the material. I suspect you will fall in love, as I did, with this beautiful and fragrant collage technique.
