COVER WITH TISSUE PAPER
Place the tissue paper over the waxed paper collage and rub the hot iron over it to adhere it together, adding more wax if necessary. You really shouldn't need to melt wax ONTO the tissue paper...there should be enough come up thru it from the under papers.
However, if it doesn't appear to be sticking, melt a few drops of wax UNDER it and iron OVER the tissue again.
Because you will adding the hearts,stars and rays, there will be more wax to spread around to the top layer anyway.
As it dries, you will see how the tissue paper "dissolves" into the back-ground papers, leaving the gold images showing up nicely.
Trim off any over-hanging papers.
