My whole room smells overwhelmingly like fresh linen. I have one of those porcelain thingys with a light bulb that you melt fragrant wax in and I put a whoooooole tray of blue linen-scented cubes in the dish today... all for the sake of art. I needed to work with two things that usually don't go together. Ok, I had this craft box lid and these little silver letter beads I've been saving for just such an occasion. I needed to put them in something... wax! I melted the blue wax in my little green dish. Figuring I could pour the wax into this lid and embed the letters, I thought, why not add some beachglass, too?
As soon as the wax was completely melted and my room smelled like a candle factory, I poured the wax into the lid and threw in some gauze just because I could. As I moved the letters into place with a mechanical pencil lead stuck way out, I realized something. Apparently I overdid it on the wax a tad and the letters became submerged so I took a picture before the wax cooled and you couldn't read it anymore. I hope you enjoy my little experiment!
