04-06-2012, 10:25 AM
And here is my first card!

Piggy in Paris (hand painted background, beeswax, napkins)

04-06-2012, 11:15 AM
Wow Minnkel,
Wat great!!
So quickly.
I'll add you and welcome to my swap.
Also Joss, I like it to have you also in this swap.

04-06-2012, 01:12 PM
Wow! Minnikel your pig in paris looks fantastic!!!!
And I really need to know the beeswax and napkin secret! ;)

04-06-2012, 01:13 PM
And here is my second one.....

Piggy Swims the 7 Seas (hand-painted background, beeswax, napkins

04-06-2012, 01:14 PM
Wow! Minnikel your pig in paris looks fantastic!!!!
And I really need to know the beeswax and napkin secret! ;)

Thanks Pixiecorpse! I learned from Mrubyjeans tutorial. Can't find it right now but it is really great. I'll look for it after lunch if no one else has directed you there before then.

04-06-2012, 01:17 PM
I shall go in search of it too! Thank you very much!
And love the underwater piggy!!!

04-06-2012, 01:31 PM
I found it! Thank you! Now I need to look for a teeny iron :D

04-06-2012, 01:48 PM
oink! oink! Please let me in!

04-06-2012, 02:15 PM
Oh Minnkel, your piggies are swinely devine! I now must go research this beeswax & napkin technique as I love the look and actually already have a tiny iron!! Fun...Fun!

04-06-2012, 02:41 PM
Pixiecorpse and Beyondshay - I don't use a small iron even. I just use one we found at a garage sale (or thrift store - I forget). It is a regular iron but I only use if for beeswax, of course. No need to spend extra money if you don't have to.

04-06-2012, 03:26 PM
I was thinking similar, I could do with a new regular iron so my *old* one could do for the beeswax although it does have the water holes in it I shall slowly continue my research...

04-06-2012, 03:33 PM
MelanieS you are very welcome!!
I'll add you.

And Minnkel, what a great cards and lovely technic.
I am curious to take a look in real:)

04-06-2012, 03:41 PM
I've got some of minnikels apcs for my mum! And close up they look super fantastic! It is such an awesome technique! But I think the artist has something to do with the awesomeness too ;)

04-06-2012, 05:44 PM
Wow! Thanks you guys. They are fun to make and I like the effect as well. I owe it all to Mrubyjean. I started just making APCs with beeswax and napkins. Then I tried out regular ATCs and LOVE it! I look forward to seeing your cards when you get them done!!

04-07-2012, 12:40 AM
May i join too? :cute:

Also are half piggies allowed? i feel like making a Mankey, which is a pig monkey. Of course if not i have more ideas for Piggy cards, so no biggie there i could just make the Mankey for regular trades might have to make some extras for regular trades anyways! :wub:

04-07-2012, 03:10 AM
Hi dremingFox.
Nice to have you in my swap.
I am curious to your pig-mankey:)
when I understand( I am Dutch and my English isnot perfect:)) i have an idea.
My rule is :When you can see that the pig is a pig so I like the fantasy.
If your first thought is: o yes thats also a pig......
Maybe you can show the card here in the thread?

Wil Opio Oguta
04-07-2012, 05:21 AM
My piggies are ready. Ali is your address still the same?

04-07-2012, 05:58 AM
Wow! Will your fast!!! And those piggies are awesome!!!!! :D

04-07-2012, 06:23 AM
Wil,what cute piggies, specially the one with themusic sheet. Aaaaaw.

You don't even need a tiny iron pixie, you can use the one you have ha ha (just clean it well afterwards or your clothes will smell of beeswax!)

04-07-2012, 08:37 AM

Hello all,
I have one question for you
Are there in the USA half a dollarcents?
My son is searching for a half dollar.
He asked me Half a dollar..Maybe you have that for me for cover the postage...?
Please mom, ask it to your players.
He is an illusionist and he has a truc with a half dollar coin.
So....if there is anybody that would sent two (or 1 is also okey)of that coins (instead of 1 dollarbiljet:)) so I can make him happy!!!!

04-10-2012, 04:44 PM
Mine are almost done just need to back and scan, please can I have your address alisl :D

04-10-2012, 04:50 PM

04-10-2012, 05:14 PM
Ho Pixiecorpse:

I am so curious!!!

Hi HGoodbrad,
You are welcome.
I will add you.
Have fun with the piggy's:)
And I take a look in your gallery, but you have no cards to show???
Maybe you can show some atc's or when your pig-cards arefinished you can show them in this thread.
