So, yesterday, I showed you my latest piece, drying happily - I was quite pleased with it and was looking forward to working with the piece when it was rinsed and dried.
I mean, it looks so ... full of potential, right?
Well, as is my usual form, I experiment first, and look for directions later if my experiment didn't work out.
It didn't work out. *heh*
See, after I happily painted it, I thought "I wonder how you set the colour? I mean, if you heat it, the soy wax will melt all over the place, not to mention ' Hi honey. Sorry about the house being burned to the ground. See, I put this wax filled thing in the microwave and...." lol
So, I let it sit for 24 hours and hoped for the best. Broke up the soy wax and rinsed the rest off under hot water. And that was the sad, sad result.
*lets take a moment to mourn*
So, then I called the store where I bought the materials and they told me you have to roll it up in paper and steam it - over a pot of boiling water or with a clothes steamer.
I guess I'll do that NEXT time.
