Today I created 2 pieces from found nature bits: a wasp nest and a bird's nest, Sing & Sting.
The backgrounds of each are handwritten copies of Aesop's fables, The Bee and Jupiter and The Swallow and Other Birds. I placed the nests and did a clear fill around them. I also added some white scratches and splatters for variety.
The wax batch I used for this was either old (can that even happen?) or not mixed well. It was very difficult to get it to do what I wanted and it kept cracking, making this "easy" project one that took almost all day. :/
Sing is also a submission for the challenge at Take a Word this week whose theme is "Feathered Friends".
