Birds and Bones Skeleton Poison by Dee Adams

  1. I stamped the lovely Skeleton and poison words onto tissue paper
  2. Using Titan Buff painted the reverse side.
  3. Cut them out and placed to the side.
  4. I soaked some mod rock in water for a couple of minutes
  5. Squeezed out the water and played it across a media board. 
  6. I heated up beeswax pellets and once melted I started to layer it onto the media board.
  7. I also used some graphics45 paper which I pushed into the warm wax after the first coat.
  8. I continued to layer the wax till I was happy using a mix of pan pastels and oil pastels to create the burnt edges.
  9. Once happy I placed the skeleton and poison words onto the warm wax and gave a final coat to seal them.
  10. I pushed in a rusty washer & attached rusty wire to the top.
I was very pleased with the outcome looking 'Very Halloween' with the hint of the paper and the mesh from the Mod Rock peeping through. I believe that you should achieve a smooth finish with the wax but felt that the uneven finish was moresuitable for this piece 'nothing to do with being unable to achieve this'!
