waxed floral

I thought I would experiment a bit and this is the result. I crumpled some Japanese paper so it was all covered with a fine web of creases, and then applied thin washes of acrylic paint to create an image of a flower garden. Once dried, I smoothed out the paper, and used beeswax to adhere the paper to a small canvas board. The final image is 5x7.
