1. Heat up the homemade heat box.
2. Rub the beeswax pigment sticks on the metal surface of the heat plate to melt them. Create a design on the plate with one or more colors.
Step 3. Lay a piece of rice or rag paper face down on the painted design and cover with newsprint. Burnish.
Step 4. Carefully pull the paper away from the heat plate.
Steps 5-6. Clean the heat plate with paper towels. Add more color to the heat plate and repeat the process to add patterns or more color to the print.
The smell of the wax is yummy and the pigments are really thick and rich to work with. I had a little play to get a feel for what the print is like (image below). Now I want to build a heat box and play!!
