RE: [art_education] wax shavings?
- The shavings will melt down a lot quicker than a big block.
Earlier this year when I wanted to melt some beeswax, I purchased a
little crock-pot-style appliance meant to keep food at serving
temperature (not for cokking). I think I found it at the grocery store
for under $15.
Another resist idea: sprinkle the shavings across a sheet of paper or
fabric, and use a heat tool (a craft one, not industrial, of course)
to melt it in the random pattern. Then just brush over it--I'd use
liquid watercolors, but if you don't have any, pan watercolors would
work fine, too.
Let us know what you decide to do with them! And if you don't use this
this school year, make sure they are stored in a cool spot over the
summer, or else you will have a big blob instead of shavings!
