Wax on Wednesdays More Monotypes on the Gel Press With Some Cool New Tools !

 I decided to do another week of printing on the Gel Press Printing plate for "Wax on Wednesdays" because I found some new cool tools to use with it ! 
 My new favorite thing (besides the hardware store of course :) is hunting for  silicone kitchen tools ! They are absolutely everywhere right now for spring  and they are great for mark making on the Gel Press plate and also the heated palette because they won't scratch . Don't overlook your local dollar store when seeking these out . 
 I also wanted to try out my new favorite medium for using with encaustic and paper on these which is walnut ink. The walnut ink is best as a base layer on the paper itself, starting some interesting marks or patterns and then layering up with the oil pigment sticks . 
Adding layers was the name of the game this week doing multiple pulls on the same paper.


 Supplies I used this week:

I am trying out using some affiliate links  for 2 reasons.
 1. I am often asked where to find the products I am using in the videos this is an easy peasy way for you to locate them . Or, at least see a good picture of what they look like so that you can locate them in your area.
2. "In theory" I would receive a very small commission "if" you purchased the product on the link and this may help me out a tiny bit in  continuing to bring you more great videos each week . I would only ever link to a product that I have found , enjoy, and use in my own art practice so that you can find it too.
 In other words I make the video for you like always , and then I go see if I can locate what I used for a good price on amazon for you .
Then if you choose to use this list as your personal shopper for your convenience,  I may make a few cents back from it . We'll see how it goes , hopefully it is helpful to both of us :)
