None of Your Beeswax Melt Art

By:

This None of Your Beeswax Melt Art designed by Lisa Fulmer is a cool way to use beeswax and heat to create beautiful DIY works of art. The texture of the wax on the finished product will blow you away. A DIY melting art project is a cool craft to make because it can be used as a wall hanging or a table piece, and it does not require a huge time commitment. Using special supplies from Ranger Ink like UTEE enamel, you can find different uses of beeswax and turn them into a DIY gift idea that will melt anyone's heart.

Instructions:

  1. Place some beeswax pellets in the project pan to melt for 15-20 minutes (follow package directions for inserting the project pan into the pot).
     
  2. Trim scrapbook paper to fit each wood panel, then carefully burn a random border around the edges with a candle flame.
     
  3. Use decoupage medium to adhere the paper to the top of each panel, allow to dry.
     
  4. Use a natural-bristle brush to quickly coat the panel with a layer of wax.
     
  5. Use the heat tool to re-melt and brush the wax into a random pattern and texture with the silicone angled brush; allow a few minutes to harden.
     
  6. Dust some Perfect Pearls pigment powder across the surface of the wax with your fingers to highlight desired areas.
     
  7. Remove the project pan when cool, then reheat the pot to the UTEE setting and pour UTEE granules in the pot to melt with a few drops of ink for color.
     
  8. Pour a puddle on melted UTEE on a texture tread and press a cookie cutter on top; allow a couple minutes to harden and cool.
     
  9. Flip the tread over and press down to push the cookie cutter all the way through the UTEE, then release your shape.
     
  10. Dust some Perfect Pearls pigment powder across the surface of the UTEE with your fingers to highlight desired areas.
     
  11. Glue the UTEE shapes on to your boards as desired.
