Ok, I followed the procedure this time and the wax came out perfectly. I made these cupcakes out of wax in large and small sizes. I can now go onto the next step and make some coloured wax with my oil paints.
This picture shows my wax melting set up. I have the thermometer and my electric griddle surface to heat the wax. I set the temperature at 200 degrees.
This is my small footprint in my second bedroom/guestroom. I hope we have no visitors over the next few months.
All the equipment has been purchased and you can see my wax cupcakes made.
What a mess this medium is and I am not sure that I will be able to continue with the process. I have to find a way to create the artwork in small steps because I can see that my area will become so overwhelming with materials and wax works. If this works and I am successful with the end products then I will be happy. I hope I don’t give up on this adventure.
