Yippee I got to play with beeswax!

Yeh I finally got to play with beeswax today. I managed to get some beeswax and a pot to melt it in,and an iron to smooth it with.Well here is my first attempt, the first is the canvas without beeswax and the second is with the beeswax, what do you think? I like the effect of the wax, cant wait to play more with it!!

Fairy-tale canvas

My new canvas is a fairy-tale princess, I loved using the subtle creamy colours and the crackle glazed background.

Gosh I have been busy today!

I managed to get three canvases finished today, so I am really pleased!

Two are Manx Fairies, as I live on the Isle Of Man, I wanted to do somethingManx and of course Fairies are a big part of the folklore here.

I have done a forest Fairie and one holding a manx cat ( yes the famous Manx cat with no tail!)

The other Angel canvas is on a crackle glazed background and I really love the effect!

Work in progress!

Work in progess- this is what I have got done this afternoon.All painted, cut out ready to stick- just got to do the canvas backgrounds!

This is a mixed media larger canvas I did, in acrylics with added elements, the title is "Home is where the heart is".

Hi everyone, I know I haven't been active for a while, I had a few teething problems, but hopefully I will be able to blog more now, and share my art!

Hope you like the Angel Canvases I have been doing, here are a couple more;

Angel Canvases

I have been painting Angel Canvases lately and I was so encouraged when some people wanted buy some and for me to do comissions for them.

I tend to do the Angels in watercolour, then paste onto a mixed media background.
