The cool thing about the fake beeswax is that you can imbed items into it just like beeswax. But unlike beeswax you can add acrylic paint on top of it and it will stick. Also the collage won't melt in high temperatures or sunlight.
Here are the particulars of both classes:
Saturday March 13th Where: Scrap-it in Santa Cruz Class: Shrink Plastic #2- Stone Petroglyphs Description: Can Shrink Plastic really look like stone? Of course it can.
