Beeswax Collage

I took a class this past Sunday at Kala Institute in Berkeley where I learned the wonderful process of using beeswax to make collages on canvas.  The teacher, Elaine Chu, was great!  She is offering this class again in Feb. 2018 at the San Francisco Center for the Book:  https://sfcb.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=3005

You can see some of Elaine’s artwork here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/egchuhandcrafted

I made two collages in the class and a third one yesterday:

Fishes & Fork                                                                                                                                             8.5″ x 10.5″
