Hidden Escape

"Hidden Escape"
Wax & Oil Paint on board
7" x 5"

I decided to explore the oil paints and cold wax on boards further and am having fun finding things around the house to use for making textures in the wax.  I used bubble wrap for the circles and a wooden skewer to carve through the various layers of wax, then took a dry, stiff brush to create some texture in the vessel.  I still don't like having to wait for what seems like FOREVER for this stuff to set and dry, but I do like the way the layers build up and the creamy look when it does finally dry.  I just got my shipment of small panels to practice on, so bear with me while I post my experiments!
