None of your cheese wax.

My middle child, the Clay Prodigy, has added a new, eco-friendly twist to her artistic musings. She is into "found" materials. Like mud. Wax from our nice candles. And cheese wax.

Yes, that's right. Cheese wax. As in: "Eureka. My friend has a hunk of cheese in her lunchbox, and she appears to be casually discarding the red wax that the cheese was wrapped in. What a tragic waste. I will rescue that wax and mold it and care for it and create something spectacular.

"Like maybe a miniature skateboard park."



Not sure if there's a market for this. But I would venture to guess this is the only Cheese Wax Skate Park blog entry that you read this week.

In an effort to save the planet by using recycled materials, may I suggest navel lint? Inexhaustible supply of material. Saves clogged drains. Perhaps she could produce "green" bling.

This is exactly how I got started with cheese wax! In 3rd grade, I made little tiny dinosaurs... Which have since evolved into people with their own "found object" accessories.

I am another cheese wax artist in CA. Perhaps my cheese wax blog could provide some inspiration for your kiddo:-)

Peace,
Allison

It is rather interesting for me to read that blog. Thank you for it. I like such themes and anything connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more soon.

My son has been doing this for the past year. In fact, I just created a Squidoo lens about it. I have added a link to your post. You can see it here:
