Blackened Beeswax Ornies!!

I've been playing in wax!!! This is something I never tried before and finding out it can be a little messy but the end result is well worth it! I just love the blackened beeswax look! I was fortunate enough to find a local beekeeper who can supply me with the raw beeswax! I clean, dye, pour and spice them up! Well..... my husband has been a little bored since the cold weather set in so he has been helping! I found some of the most wonderful colonial looking molds from Sharon of Homespun Heart Primitives which really got me interested in making these for my craft shows! Also using some soap molds my mom had and found some antique looking candy molds of bunnies! Here are some pictures of what I have made up so far! These are little 3" bunnies that I was able to put a rusted wire hanger on so you can hang them on a tree or they do stand alone.

This is a 6" Easter bunny which will stand alone!
A Pineapple Ornie measuring about 2 1/2"!
A Willow Tree!

A Prairie Doll!I have more wonderful molds on the way so be on the look out! If interested in any of these let me know! They look so cute hanging on a twig tree, cupboard knob or peg board!
Have a great day!!!
