Using over 155 step-by-step photographs and many inspirational examples, Michael Bossom shows how to paint a whole range of stunning pictures - vibrant flowers, incredible fantasy scenes, tranquil landscapes and luminous abstract designs. Different surfaces can be used including wood, rigid board, absorbent and sealed card, foil, and smooth, textured and tissue paper. Images can be transferred on to fabric which can then be overpainted, or embroidered and embellished with beads and collage. There are so many ways to use the pastel, bold, bright and metallic colours - the free flowing wax melts magically into patterns, borders and intricate designs or skies, trees, lakes and mountains. Each painting is unique and original and a whole range of cards and gifts can be make quickly and simply.
