EXPERIMENTING WITH WAX

Took some photos at the AZ State Fair so that I could do some experimenting with wax and crayons on original images.

Some failures: transferring image onto wax coated board did not work. Same goes for trying an acetone transfer, it was very blotchy. And a heat transfer only took in some spots.

Here I just printed the image from my laser printer and waxed it on a board, then crayoned over, melted some, crayoned more, blew it dry... just testing. Not sure if I like the effect yet, it needs more work. The leggings and her arm are the best areas and look the most painterly.

Will try again.
