Ahhhhhh…..the smell of beeswax in the morning!

What an exciting medium to work with! The colours and textures are deliriously delicious and light comes from within. The procedure of applying molten wax to various surfaces was used by Egyptians more than 3000 years ago – the resulting paintings of the mummies are there for us to admire in the British Museum in London or in the National Museum Cairo. So yes… they last!

Will they melt? Put it this way… use common sense. One never puts fine art in direct heat. Pure beeswax has a melting point of 150°F /65.5°C. As they say… if your house is over 150° you have bigger problems!

AND… as an extra precaution I protect them by having pieces professionally framed. Enjoy!
