Wax on Wednesdays Texture Turned Assemblage With Pan Pastels


Continuing on the texture journey this week , I came across these little guys and just couldn't resist. As a result this weeks "Wax on Wednesdays" pieces are more 3D encaustic assemblages than textures , but what fun !
They are paper Ketchup cups from fast food/self serve type restaurants !
The fact that they are paper, absorb the wax , and light weight , make them perfect embedding material for encaustic. 

The fun part was shading the pieces  with the Pan Pastels. 



Last week I took a field trip from the studio over to Ms. Reagan's high school.  
I was a guest artist for 3 days and had the honor of introducing the ancient art of encaustic to the Honors Art3/ AP art class.  Amazing experience , Amazing students, Amazing art was created ! 

This is just some of the work that was created as some of the students were not quite done with their projects just yet. 
22 in all and each and every piece was completely and wonderfully unique. I can't say enough about these amazing young artists . 


























 Yes ! We did shellac burn cautiously :)
























What a wonderful experience this was , to see where everyone would go with their pieces , and their new encaustic knowledge . Each piece as unique and fabulous as the artist that created it.  I can also see how much all of the students are inspired daily by this wonderful lady, Thank you Ms. Burris !

  2. Great and simple post you shared. Waxing has such a mythology about it, but it really is just making a common sense! Thanks for pointing that in your post.
