Experamenting with Beeswax

This is my first attempt at sealing with beeswax. It took a bit of work, and some scraping, but it came out ok for my first try i suppose. However i did learn that sometimes layers of acrylic, and hot wax don't really mix. I had a bit of trouble with this piece, mostly around her chin and jawline... although the photo accentuates the flaws a bit more than in person. Overall i am happy, and really enjoyed the process. Awe shucks, i think this one might just have to stay with me =).

And on a side note, beeswax smells WONDERFUL!! My house smells like honey all the time now =)
