Inspiration Post - Be Brave

Hi everyone, Lula here with my first inspiration post!
I decided to encourage you a bit to join us in our current challenge Wax Lyrical.
Although I am not an expert in this field I would like to show you that anyone could play with wax, even not having special, fancy tools!
I can guarantee you great fun!

I have prepared a male card where I used wax seal refills ( the one and only wax I could buy here) in silver and gold, to make a background.

Using my heat tool I started by melting the wax on gessoed piece of cardboard.

Here you can see a coat of  wax and some dripping added.

Unfortunately the whole piece started to crack...

so I gave it a coat of Deco Art crackle glaze to emphasize the effect.

I stamped some images on tissue paper and glued them with gel medium to the background.

I finish my piece off adding more stamping and some metal elements. 

I hope this inspires you to have a go at playing with wax

There is still time for you to enter our current challenge.....
