After my last post I decided I would need more of these objects. I decided to use two more canvases. These particular canvases were from two people in my adoptive family. After choosing to use these particular canvases I realized that the four canvases used for these objects all had been touched by adoption in some fashion. The first canvas I chose, her mother had been adopted, the second, her sister, and of course these two I was the adoptee. Anyway, I just thought it a strange coincidence, I hadn't purposely chosen to do it this way.
Below are the objects after one dipping in wax. I think I'll incorporate all these objects with one of the other canvases at some point but haven't decided exactly the best approach at this point.
