with wax and resin



Getting back out in the garage and slowly getting a few things happening. Two weeks ago I spent a day ripping some of my oak on the table saw making it into nice thin strips for frames.



I wanted frames for the wax pictures I started earlier in the Summer. I like to use old wood or wood with life in it still. The oak I am using is off-cuts from posts made on Cornwall Wildlife Trust's nature reserves years ago. They are long posts, roughly cut on three sides, the fourth being untouched and still with bark on. Now I have a table saw I can at last do something with this wood.






I had a day working with wax yesterday slowly building up layers and embedding things within these frames. And today I got the resin out. More layers and things. New work on the way.
