Wax on Wednesdays Encaustic Painting Embedding For Shape, Texture, Form ...

This week I am posting the video directly from the Youtube channel to the blog, so we will see how this goes!  I am a little more weary of experimenting with technology, but constantly try and force myself to keep up with these new buttons and gadgets that are available out there :)

Continuing the encaustic embedding theme this month with some fun shapes and textures. 
There are so many ways you can go with just these 2  elements ( string or twine, and old magazines)  and embedding them into the encaustic surface . I am showing one fun way, but I can feel  a whole series brewing with these fun items! 

Here is the supplies I used this week:
4x4x2" unprimed cradle board
painters tape to mask off sides
vintage magazine cuttings
R and F encaustic medium
Burnt sienna and black Sennelier oil paint sticks
heat gun (Wagner)
clay tools and scraper

  2. Hi Shari, After watching several of your wonderful videos, I finally painted my first abstract and encaustic painting ever. If you like, you can check it out here:
    Thank you so much for the inspiration!

  3. Thank you for sharing such a great tutorial for us! I think that making a video for it makes it even easier to follow, as people can see how exactly you did a certain part or process. I’m sure that your followers will appreciate that you try to use things such as these for your posts. Cheers!
