in last weeks class i cleaned several old boards
creating one new one
with one of the newly cleaned  boards i created the above
covering the board with old book pages and a ticket stub
for the first layer i used a "glaze" of ocher
allowing the text to show throw the wax
then i started building the texture
using a grid stencil in the center
and alternating red and white wax
using the heat gun to smooth out a few spots and
to highlite the texture i rub in some burnt umber oil paint
and remove the excess from the top
