Utee and beeswax

Hello, Carol here again with another technique Wednesday.

This week Joanne and I are using utee - I was also supposed to do a piece with beeswax - unfortunately I had a slight mishap with the beeswax!! lol so I promise I will do another piece in the next few weeks...

So, utee - there is a gorgeous range available now in many different colours with loads of different ways to use it...either heating with your heatgun or in the melt pot.

Joanne has created this gorgeous hanging:-

The larger piece is a twinchie and suspended from it is an inchie....these had three layers of utee and then stamped into with perfect pearls, heated wax was then dropped onto the piece and then covered with rub n buff - a  bit of acryllic paint, glass pebble and florist wire complete the piece..... do pop on over to Joannes blog for a full description.

 and a close up:-
isn't it gorgeous?

I've had one of those weeks where the ol' mojo has gone on holiday and everything I've touched has gone pear shaped (especially the beeswax!!)

This was piece one:-


A journalling block covered with two layers of clear utee then different coloured utees on the top which when heated all melted into one, a stamp was then pressed into the molten utee and then when cool inka gold rubbed over the top.

Piece two:-

Journalling block covered with distress stains and then tissue paper adhered......the edges were then covered with molten utee - a tando cog and some buttons finish off the piece.

Thank you for joining us again this week.

See you next Wednesday for our last piece.

TFL xx
