I have to admit, I bought “Inka Gold” with NO clue what it was. And used it like any other paste – which did work. But then I discovered through some research, that a little goes a LONG way! Let’s get started on day six of Go for the Gold class!

Shiny Beeswax

The fact that beeswax comes in delicious shiny colors makes me wonder…what kind of bees are these? And can we have them make us more shiny crafty things?? In today’s lesson I’ll show you how I made a piece of Craftaboard look like metal – and how I colored a sled with Copics to look golden, too! Watch the video below, or check it out HERE in HD on YouTube!

I just love the contrast between the polished shine of the beeswax and the dull snowy look of the texture paste….things that provide that kind of contrast on a card make it interesting. Along with being a unique round shape, too!
