going for a dip

... oh don't I wish
:)

actually, here I am dipping things into beeswax again


(please don't look too closely at the sink full of dishes in the background!)


I'm dipping hydrangeas again, but this time I'm dipping a whole section at a time
(see THIS previous post for an earlier hydrangeas in beeswax session)
another change: I'm using a mini crockpot for melting the wax


and today is a particularly photogenic day with all the afternoon sunshine
- wee hah -
I'm soaking it up


aren't they pretty in an old jar?
I also love how they look in a simple bowl on the table


pure loveliness in my view

Such a neat idea! I just happened to have melted bees wax just yesterday and poured it into a candle...hum now I'm going to have to get it out again and try this! Enjoy the sunshine!

Yvonne said...

So pretty. The colors are gorgeous. How long do they last?

Katie said...

Oh my, that one pic with the sun hitting the drop of wax is aaaamazing! Beautiful stuff friend. :0)

What dirty dishes? Was there anything but amazing flowers in there?

Wax always seem to make everything so soft...so pretty! Your hydrangea petals are lovely, nature is the best design!

What a great way to wax flowers. I usually just paint them and add to my collages but I like your way better.

I went to your earlier post on "how to" and love the hanging waxed flower mobile. Thanks so much for this neat trick.

I hope the sun will greet you for many more days. Hydrangeas are beautiful in any form. Have fun playing and creating. Best wishes, Tammy

I am always amazed at the colors of the blossoms and how they can vary so much, I can smell the beewax from here. Currently snowing so this vestige of fall is welcoming. xox

What gorgeous beeswax and sunshine images, Kim ! Yummy ! How I wish I had smell-o-screen.
I didn't notice your dishes until you said something. Lord knows there are too many wonderful arty things to be doing to worry too much about dishes. ;-)
Happy Thursday !
