DAY 87 - Candle

TITLE: Monk Beheading the Blood Beast

ASSIGNMENT: What can you do with a candle?  Try using the drips from a lit candle to make an image, or use an unlit one to draw on a porous surface, then make the image appear with watercolor or ink.  Or, as always, feel free to experiment.

MATERIALS: White candle lit, paper, black pen, red sharpie.

INSPIRATION: I wanted to make the beast come off the page with the wax, so lots of candle build up. Then coloring its face red and the final touch, the sideways lighting making he dried wax droplets seem like tiny rocks.
