My Creative Workbook

Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman


Making bowls out of wax.

A mould is a hollow container or profile used to give shape to molten or hot liquid material as it cools and hardens.

Wax bowls

Connect the two cherry pink wax bowls with wired and curved Equisetum. Place a Lucky Bamboo stem with a beautiful spiral in a small test tube and insert to follow the curve.

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.
