Just Having a Little Chat

She is painted on a 12 x 12 Ampersand wood panel. I decided that I would try a faux beeswax finish so I followed a recipe that I saw in a book and I have to say that I wouldn't try it again. I will just go ahead and use beeswax. In fact, I could beeswax over the faux beeswax but I probably won't. The birds are collaged on. I actually painted them first and didn't like mine so I collaged---but I think I will try and phase in my own painted birds. The collaged ones just look so much better!

Martha, Collaged or painted your artwork always looks wonderful. It is good to try new things though, kudos to you for giving it a try.

Lovely, and I love how you tried something new, so it didn't work out, but at least you tried it and now you know.
