Felt much happier with the results today, I didn't press hard as I had been doing, just need to make sure I get the right amount of wax on the iron. I also found a lot of tutorials on Youtube, and of course some amazing pictures. I really would like the stylus, not sure whether to buy one from Hobbycraft, or get it from CnC. The latter has a kit, and it comes with the extra bits, plus more wax, whereas Hobbycraft just sell the stylus. Decisions, decisions! Or I could get more wax and paper from HC? Mmmm, that sounds like an idea!
Did this pic, on left by applying the blue wax to bottom of card, then a mix of green and blue to top half. Made the tree with the tip of the iron, not a bad effort.
This, in fact both to a certain extent, reminded me of the Northern Lights, which a friend of mine was lucky enough to see. I was trying to get that 'curtain' of light, which I think is so magical. The stylus would make all the difference, with that you can do fine work, which you simply can't with the iron, it is just too clumsy.
It is all a whole load of fun though, and I can highly recommend it.
No reiki sessions for me today, had the most bizarre accident this morning, was having a shower and managed to drop the shower gel, a full and large bottle of Sanex, onto my foot! Had a nice bruise and a very sore foot. Just didn't fancy hobbling around all day at the centre. I have a full day at an MBS fair tomorrow, that is Mind Body and Spirit, holistic and new age stuff, a much bigger affair than the last one we did. I usually attend this MBS as a customer, so this will be my first time as a seller!
I hope to get round to more crafting on Sunday. Possibly a few more tags!
Have a great weekend.
