Working with Beeswax

I made my first attempt to work with beeswax, and it turned out wonderful! I don't know why I waited so long to get myself to work with this medium. It gives such a great aged look to things. Here is one of my original collages "J'Adore Paris". It is collaged with a beautiful fleur de lis paper, an eiffel tower image, vintage butterfly cut-outs, and text. I added details with charcoal as well, before I layered on the beeswax.

Enjoy and Please leave your comments! (Also, I have this piece for sale in my Etsy store, if you would like it!)
