So Michelles crusades have come around again and this time we are doing wax rubbings and painting over them so that the wax resists the paint. I have actually done quite a few of these but many of them havn't photographed so well as the colours I used were just too light. That said I am particularly fond of my car tyre which I struggled to get to but you can just about get the idea from thisThis one was anaglypta wall paperAnd this one...the good old fashioned house brick! Rubbing done in a purple colour and the paint was metallic platinum ...just love the iridescence.
Of course what better place to put my rubbing of a house brick than on my little houses for the little boxes swap?
I quite enjoyed doing these rubbings and of course this is only limited by your imagination...and your crayons...mine were cheapies and I think a better effect could have been achieved with better tools...not that I am blaming them!
