Wax on Wednesdays Some Shellac Play !

Happy Wax on Wednesdays!
This week I thought it would be fun to play with some different effects that are possible with shellac burn in an abstract landscape. 
Shellac can burn fast or slow depending on the dry times. It  also depends on the heat application and the amount of heat that is  applied. 
I tinted some clear shellac with Pearl Ex Antique bronze to add some fun earthy  darks into the landscape. 
When I am preparing to do a landscape I always get my favorite colors out in multiple mediums to have close buy. I show some R an F pigment sticks that are my favorite colors for landscapes in the video but I don't end up using them in this week's process :)
This is a fun way to explore the different effects that shellac  can have on the encaustic wax, and the pigments. 
The video is a sped up process , but I allow several hours or even over night for each layer of shellac to dry :)
