Yes, this is what I did aaaaallllll day today! well , I finished a few other paintings as well but this one little painting took me most of the day! First I drew her, then I painted her on a page from a vintage book and painted her with acrylics, then I cut out her dress, painted the background of the canvas in acrylics, adhered a small piece of an old children's fable book with a little drawing of a sheep,( thats where my inspiration came from). It then took me forever.... to melt the beeswax in the microwave and layer the first layer of beeswax down, went to use the heat blower and blew the fuse!!!! I then had to go in the garage, find a latter and open the fuse box and reset everything because I couldn't figure out which one was the particular fuse... that took about 35 minutes!!!! Then I accidentally locked myself in the garage!!!! we only have a garage door, I opened the garage and had to go to all the doors of the house luckily, i had left the back door open,(lost 4 pounds, due to the heat!!!!) another 20 minutes. finally get inside and had to reheat the wax!!!!!!! second layer of wax with some of the papers put the blower back on and then blow the blower up!!!!!(so much fun!!!)I go get the blow dryer this time... oh the wax is cold again! reheat! another layer, more papers, the cutout doll...some oil paint, put the hair dryer on it, blow everything too high, start again!!!! well you get the picture, you'll want to jam a fork in your eye if I continue, and I really wouldn't want any injuries!....anyway just thought I'd give you a little peek at my wonderful day! hope you like my Bo Peep!
And here's my 4th painting on Ebay..."Butterfly" Have a great night... I hope I do :( I'm exhausted, wonder why...
