I took a few encaustic classes earlier this year and fell in love with the medium. Unfortunately, it does require a little more time, and set up, than some mediums so I haven’t played with wax as much as I would like.
But the other day, I created this is 8” by 10” piece based on Jane Davies class Sketchbook Scribbles, I collaged newspaper to a wood board for the base then I covered the background with acrylic paint, oil pastels and encaustic wax medium….resulting in this!
For the next piece, I have a tissue paper background and acrylic paint and ink for the design…..no encaustic wax involved….yet!
I’m trying to put together a few pieces for a show in August…..this is a start but I’m still shooting for a more, especially, more encaustics.
