Faux Wax Seals, Polymer Clay Tutorial
Have you ever been completely fascinated by something? When I was younger I used to write letters all the time and seal them with wax seals, because I thought they were neat. They always reminded me of some Royal Kingdom far, far away. To this day, they still do. I picture ladies in a billowy dressing writing letters and sealing them with their family crests; Lords & Kings making mighty decrees for a whole nation of people on large scrolls, sealed with a symbol of their power in dark red wax. To this day, I still think of that.
As I was meandering the internet several weeks ago, I came upon a lovely scrapbooking blog on how to make your own wax seals using Zots adhesive dots. As soon as I saw them I was taken back to my childhood and my fascination with wax seals. Several months ago I reached out to several of my Parker collectors. One of the most frequent comments from them is that there is too much “paperwork” with my StoryBook Scenes. As one of my collectors put it: “I’m not interesting in the adoption certificate, just the figurine.” Even though my Parker & Lolly characters already come in custom muslin bags, I wanted there to be just that one more thing that makes them special & completely my creation. Then it hit me, faux wax seals on their collectible bags. So … without any further ado, let’s get started!
