I’m finding this to be a delightful medium to work with. The melted beeswax (I use a small crockpot) gives off a wonderful scent. The collage has a gentle glow and subtle depth and softness. The fish (copyright-free images) were printed on a color copier (inkjet prints do not work with this method).
