G and I have been working on some handmade gifts as part of our Advent activities. We picked out some plain wood ornaments at one of our local craft stores that we thought would make great presents. Then I set out the watercolors and G got painting!
After the paint dried, he used some of my homemade beeswax polish to condition the wood and give it a lovely luster. (I used this recipe to make it, after looking at several different options.) He loves the way they came out and I know his gift recipients will, too.
