Wax works…..


Been experimenting with encaustics…..I can see why this medium is becoming so popular, as a beginner, I’ve learned there is little real control and a lot of happy “accidents”!

IMG_2024 This is cloth, paper and metal….all buried in waxy goodness.

IMG_2025 Close up of details!

IMG_2027 This one is small, 4”x4”, paper and wax….I think the title should be “Fried Egg”! LOL

IMG_2030 This one is a little larger….it is wax over paper with some India ink for the final touches!

The last one isn’t finished but I love the color combo and the small bits of REAL silver leaf.





Photo is a bit dark but I love the colors…green paper with light blue and gold/white.  I’m not sure where I’m going with this….I’ll show you when I’m finished.




Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will leave a comment….I love hearing from you.

You are having such fun!!! Looks good. Hey...I found my first "found object" yesterday on a road. I got so excited and can't wait to use it in something one day!!! LOL.

I so enjoy reading about your adventures with encaustics. I have never used them, but I sure like beeswax. Of course, the resin and color are missing, and there isn't as much control with beeswax as you seem to have with encaustics.
