Video tutorial: how to use beeswax

Yasu and I got together a couple of days ago and put together this beeswax tutorial. It’s about 7 and a half minutes long and is our first EVER Gauche Alchemy video! Let us know what you think!

Oh, and I mention “we’re back” at the beginning of the video – you didn’t miss anything. I made a little “this is my life” video before this one with a teaser about the beeswax tutorial… but I decided it basically sucked, so I won’t be posting it. 🙂

The final version of the project Yasu was working on is finished… I’ll post a photo of it very soon!

I am off to take a picture.
