what’s up with waxes?
Waxes are a pretty old medium – and they’re making their modern rise in popularity. Of course, when an old concept comes back into the mainstream, it always gets a facelift – whether that’s new colors, new formulas, better applications, and creative ways to use them, or whatever the case may be, there’s always a “new” aspect to the “old” product.
Waxes are no different! This month, we’re exploring two different brands – the Prima Art Alchemy waxes, and the Ranger (Tim Holtz) Foundry Waxes. They’re two totally different things, and can be used in some similar and some different ways.
This week is our first dive into the Prima waxes. These have been around for a while – and used mostly in the assemblage/mixed media world. The tubes are new, so you might have some of these in little round metal containers – same thing. K? K!
My favorite features of these amazing tubes of goodness are:
- Intense color
- Amount of product (a little goes a long way!)
- They actually DRY and don’t lift off!
- Water resistant
- Pleasant smell (this can be a plus or minus if you’re sensitive to perfum-y smells. It does cover up the chemical smell that other waxes have.)
Please note that though these waxes are beeswax based, they are NOT listed as non-toxic. When doing finger applications, I use sometimes use finger cots, and am sure to wash my hands to remove any wax before eating, etc.
