SUPPLY LIST 

 

Learn how to create a collage entirely with beeswax - no other glues or adhesives are necessary! You'll discover and practice techniques including layering, transparency using all natural beeswax. Limited supplies will be provided for basic collages, but bring your favorite images and ephemera , also your art box (with scissors, brushes, charcoal, and supports ) Any images you bring should be on regular computer paper, or Xerox. The thinner the better, (reduce and enlarge these to have choice in scale) Glossy photos won’t work well with this process, but fabric, stencils and small 3-D object work great!
