Gilding Wax from Woodware

Hi All
Wow, didn't it rain this morning! The manhole at the bottom of the road popped, which, given the flooding that we had at the beginning of the year is always a little bit of a concern. Fortunately it never came to anything.
On Saturday at Davina's, the ladies had requested to play with Embossing Folders and Gilding Wax.
I noticed that Woodware now sell a Gilding Wax in four different colours, so I thought that I would try it out.
It is very hard to see in the photographs but it works like a charm. I have used it on all of the surfaces on the card, including the ribbon.
The handmade flower has been made using some bits of background paper and a Woodware flower punch.
The blue panel has been dry embossed and then swiped all over with a Distress ink pad. I coated it with clear embossing powder and heated it before adding some Gold and Silver Gilding Wax with my finger.
I still find this the best method to apply any of the waxes, but I used a stencil brush to get some of it out of the pot (fingernails, no matter how long or short get in the way here) and then tapped this onto my craft sheet before using my finger to gently apply it to the card.
By removing most of the wax off the brush onto the craft sheet I was also able to use the stencil brush direct onto the card and its elements. This is something that I have not been successful with before.
It highlighted the die cut leaves beautifully. I can definitely see this appearing on my cards a lot more often.
Thank you Woodware for finding me another cool product for my crafty stash.
