Thursday Tip : (Faux) Blackened Wax Fruit Tutorial~Thrift Shop Bowl Makeover

Good Morning, Primmies -
I love the blackened beeswax ornies and bowl fillers but I'm not set up to work with melted wax. It's not that I wouldn't love to make my own candles and
tarts, but we just don't have a good place to work
that wouldn't ruin our teensie kitchen. 
So when I came across this tut I thought, "Great,
I can manage this". It might not appeal to the most
purist of primmies but I don't mind a shortcut or two.

Rhonda of It's A Kattywhompus Life very graciously allowed me
to post her method of making faux blackened wax fruit. Click the either of the links to go to her blog post. Rhonda started with the above thrift shop wax fruit:

And she ended with this very nice 'blackened wax' fruit. Ta Da!
Read her post for the very small list of supplies that you will need, how she did it and her bowl re-finish.
I hope you enjoy this.
Have a good morning, Prims -
