DIY Wax Painting

Is it still painting if you're using wax?  I don't know... and I don't really care because I think the results are pretty awesome.

You will need:
  • Sealing wax in multiple colors
  • Lighter (yes, mine is shaped like a gun)
  • Canvas
Simply melt the wax and let it drip onto the painting.  Super easy!

If you're lucky, the colors might melt together some and create a cool effect.

You can also tilt the canvas as you go, letting the wax run until it cools.  I did mine in sort of a gradient, with the black concentrated in one corner and the gold concentrated in the other corner.

Totally doable!


  1. Nice! I love the black and gold!
