Here is another update on the piece I mentioned last week. I am layering wax on top of the structure I built.

It was slow going until I pulled out my MASSIVE brush.

You can’t get much finesse with that sucker, but it sure is effective in transferring large quantities of beeswax.

I’m not sure how much I like how this is turning out. I may start over and revert to my original plan, which was to carve the entire thing out of wax. (My concern was that it would get too heavy to hang, but that might be worth sacrificing if I can’t get the look I want.) Before I undo hours and hours of work, though, I will spend some time working on the surface. It’s pretty rough right now (don’t judge yet!). Then, the next step is to add another element on top of the landscape—coming soon!
