"Joy"ful canvas making

I had a great day in the studio with Joy. :)

She couldn't make our canvas workshop this weekend so she asked if she could come into the studio today to do it with me instead -- Of course!!! What a pleasure it was to have her there!

This was Joy's first time using wax as a medium on canvas.

I showed her how to create the base and "embellish" from there -- Look at the fabulous piece she created!! ...and this was her first time! Way to go Joy! It looks marvelous!
I dabbled in the wax today too. Couldn't let her do it on her own :)

I created this canvas and I am really happy with the way it turned out.

I was able to complete most of it when Joy was with me... but after she left I continued adding elements - including a little cheesecloth background. I fused cheesecloth into the wax on the background of the piece with Kandi's Hot Wax Stylus. I just loved how it
created a textured, matte finish. I see me doing more of this for sure!
I still have a space (maybe 2) in Saturday's canvas workshop. If you would like to make an 8x8 canvas of your own in waxy style.... we'd love to create with you!
Contact the studio 519 954 6620 and let me know that you are interested. Cost is $40 and includes the canvas, wax, tools and some lunch. Hope you can join us!!
