Hand Painted Halloween Shirts

What are you most proud of? I messed up a few times, but was able to salvage them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't use cheap crayons - they bleed when you remove the wax. Don't use cheap paintbrushes, they were a pain in the butt and weren't blending the wax smoothly. Do this is in a well ventilated area - the melting wax gives off noxious fumes. Have patience! It takes a looong time to remove the wax from the shirts.
