Pretty much, yes. For just a very few small spots I used a tool (back of a spoon) to fill in some spots the wax would not drip onto for some reason. Those spots were smaller than a penny and probably about 10 of them. 99.999% was done just with the hairdryer.

What did you do with everything when you finished? Was it done on a painting canvas or just on art paper? Very cool!!

It was done on canvas and is now hanging on my wall.

Last night I went around the kitchen with a hairdryer and melted all the dots of wax that splattered everywhere.

I wish I could take credit for the idea, but it was someone else's brilliant idea. I got it from Springpad.com (which everyone here should join because we have a DC page... (Springpad: Smart Notebooks).

My wife is pretty used to coming home and seeing me to weird things like this. Her first taste of my craziness was when we had just moved in with each other. She came home to find me with every mirror in the house on top of our bed covered in food color and me with a camera hanging around my neck. She knew she was in trouble from that day on.

Holy bat guano you're made for each other. I'm not asking any more leading questions.
