Waxed book pages…

What do you do with a paraffin foot bath and extra wax that you no longer use and and old dictionary?? 
For the Nada sale I waxed the pages for display to give them an old world kind of look. I think these could be cool and creepy for Halloween too.
  I put it on low so I wouldn’t burn myself and spread out some cardboard to rest the pages on to dry.
Then I dipped them slowly. After I pulled them out, I let the wax harden slightly then I laid them out to dry. By propping them on cardboard rolls and wadded paper you can shape them.
They turned out pretty cool for an experiment. I know paraffin is flammable so you have to make sure to keep them away from flame, but I just loved the glossy texture of them and am planning in using them for other crafts as well.
It had me thinking, what else can I wax? 🙂

  1. What a unique idea! I think these could fit into decor all year round. I especially like the ones that you shaped and curled.

  2. Jennifer- Really fun idea, toots! Only I would think that the wax looks like glazed sugar icing on a giant cookie! I always have food on the brain, apparently…..
    I need to catch up with you. I haven’t visited since before I went to Florida.

  4. i am going to do this. but what i do is use the low setting on a crock pot i got at gw. dip pine cones and roll them in that granular stuff that makes colored flames and use for fire starters.so use all my old candle ends and the aparafin.

  5. Yes you know you can wax your legs too 🙂 Just made me giggle. My friend Frances came back with a glowing report of Anne Maries sale..she said you were just so nice and loved everything ! Sorry I couldn’t make it but it’s a long story. Bottom line..Mac needed me.
    Take care and hope to see you soon
    Love
