Fall and Blackened Bees Wax....

Wax Never Smelled So Good!
Since my little "Christmas Mouse" came out in the "Better Homes and Garden" craft issue I have taken a more aggressive look at "Blackened Beeswax". Sharon Mitchell of "Homespun Heart" provided the little black beeswax candles for my little mouse. She is the one I have often turned to for her opinion about beeswax, quality, molds and the whole process. I love the smells and textures of this very old art form. I have purchased many of Sharon's pieces and always love displaying them in my old country store/home. One of Sharon's favorite beeswax artists is Janet Gerding of "Bee Charmers Cottage". I love drooling over her pieces of beeswax art and often having to remind myself that it is wax.

I have noticed many individuals trying their own hand at this art form...Maybe someday when I have more time and a bit more confidence I will consult with the experts and give it a try....but in the meantime I will continue shopping at HomespunHeartPrimitives.blogspot.com and www.beecharmerscottage.com

I am with you Pam. I have tried it, and I would rather buy it LOL
I will stick to dipping lights and let the pouring of the beeswax to these talented girls :)
