Dipping Hexagons in Wax

Today was a busy one. 4 students (Costas, John, Shayla and Claire) helped me out today to dip the hexagon clusters in beeswax. It was a fun but messy job. I am very thankful to the students for spending time with me on a Sunday to work on this. Installation is Saturday November 29, at the Meewasin Valley Center. Hopefully it isn't too cold.

The day began with the count.

 Ta da.
