Heart Journal October - Wax Finish


This month's altered heart uses candle wax as a finish.  I used dark red cardstock for the background of my heart and stamped and heat embossed it with a white powder skull.  I then dribbled black gesso down the whole heart in places and let this dry.  You can't see it but I then stamped the right side with black ink branches of a tree.  Using my heat gun I melted a white domestic candle to drip over the whole heart except around the skull.  I stamped with white ink a spider's web in the top right section.  The words "happy haunting" and a few vine leaves around the skull were also stamped and then highlighted with fimo gold powder.  I then used the same powder to highlight the texture of the wax at the bottom of the heart.   Finally i gave the whole heart a spray with semi gloss varnish.
