Default WT776 ~ Getting Waxy ~ {01/23/2020}

Happy Thursday to you all. It's Sabrina here as your hostess this week - and I want you to use wax in some way on your creations today. It can be wax crayons, waxed paper... I'm sorry if the challenge is a bit messier looking than usual - as of when I went to bed last night, the site bugs were still not resolved. So unfortunately I am also unable to add the samples, and I'll post mine in a separate post to avoid any issues with this one. My thanks go to Lisa and Carla - I'm sure you will be inspired by their creations.

Some tutorials to give you inspiration and ideas:

Encaustic

Wax Paper Resist (the tutorial is with embossing folders, but of course you can just wrinkle it in your hand as HERE)

Debossed Die Resist

Crayon Rubbed Embossing

Melted Crayon Background

Crayon Resist

or any other favourite technique you might have. Share the details with us!

Here's a link to our WT776 Getting Waxy challenge gallery.

I made two samples - one using the crayon rubbed embossing, and then after work yesterday I got home in time to try my own makeshift version of the melted crayon background. I have so many crayons, having bought several packs over the years in the quest for a good white to use for resist techniques. In the end, my answer was a colourless stick from Colourcraft, the manufacturers of Brusho.

Thanks for the fun challenge, Sabrina. Here's my sample, WT776 The Stars are Out. I love the Melted Crayon Background technique. It's magic to watch the patterns and colors appear on the paper!!

Oh man.  I didn't pack any crayons!  Can't wait to play along when I get home tomorrow.  Got stuck here in Dayton for an extra night after getting hit with a stomach bug.  Just starting to feel a little better--"see" you all tomorrow!

Why didn't I ask for craft store advice before I left? I'll have to remember for next time!

Hi - Here's another one using distress crayons. I found this technique last week, and definitely wanted to try! Super easy and fun, I may need to get more distress crayons! I *had* been struggling to find ways to use the crayons, LOL.
