One fun aspect of painting with wax is, if you don't like what you've created, you can pull out the hairdryer and make something unexpected. One day I wanted to make an abstract tree with yellow autumn leaves. When I finished it, I didn't like it at all...
All the brown wax from previous trees blended with the yellow to create a leathery looking background. It doesn't look anything like the image I wanted to create, but I love these unexpected surprises.
