I've been wanting to cover a picture with a wax coating for awhile and today I thought I would give a try. Instead of bee's wax I just used a scented candle I had burning and dipped my brush in the melted wax close to the wick. It turned out pretty good but next time I will try melting bee's wax in a pan and brushing it on with a bigger brush. However, my little bird picture does smell terrific!!
