Additional supply list:

Cheap set of brushes that includes a couple of flats and rounds for wax application.
Watercolor paints
Watercolor brushes
A water proof backing board and painters tape to secure your art work
Some type of melting pot,  they make small wax melting pots you can buy or we can use a slow cooker, the small slow cookers for wax scents should also work (no open flames please).
a black permanent ink marker - he said fine lines are good
a note on the old brushes to use with the wax - Don't use the synthetic fiber brushes because they will melt in the heat.  Natural bristles are best. (like hogshair)
