Fall Inspires Me...

The first day of Autumn I started putting together
this collage. It has many papers, cloth
and an acrylic face that I enlarged drew and
painted on.

Because of the different textures the lens had trouble,
getting the face as clear as really shows up.

I am trying to decide to seal it with wax or an acrylic
finish in semi gloss. I think wax looks richer but if you want
to mail or transport, not as versatile. I have heard of a wax
additive to ad to allow it to harden but never have used.
Any body out there with info on this I'd greatly
appreciate.

add damar resin to your wax, gives it a little more strength, look online for recipe. :) are you fusing your wax as well? with torch or heat gun.?
