Beeswax darkens when it's been heated repeatedly...especially the beeswax that I've been using for my sculptures since I heat it to a rather hot temperature for beeswax. When I get to the bottom of this batch, I'll start over with fresh wax and resin. This cycle will be subtly evident in the pieces themselves...subtly, because the wax on the pieces are in shallow solidified pools. This batch currently looks like the eucalyptus dye that I made...which by the way, is still sitting in my window sill. Apparently, eucalyptus doesn't mold like many dyes while stewing. So, I'm thinking of experimenting with it further...when I have the time.
In other news, I'm still recovering from a nasty cold...it's been over two weeks. I'm now to the *fun* part where I cough until I nearly crack a rib...yeah. So, there's lots of catch-up going on around here. I hope you are faring better these days. I also hope this means that our household won't be sick for Christmas.
I hope your week is treating you well, dear readers!
