Wax on Wednesdays! Encaustic Excavation and Watching the Magic Fluid Movement

I am off to Columbus ! 
If you are attending Artiscape Artist Gathering this year I am excited to see you ! I am sharing 3 all new workshops on Friday Saturday and Sunday. 
You can see all of the 50 workshops and info for Artiscape 
Happy Wax on Wednesdays ! 
This week I was using some masonite board as my test palette for all of the encaustic paint I was creating for the workshops. This provided a wonderful opportunity to watch what magic would happen to the wax with the torch and heat gun were used at different angles , distances, etc. 

I also covered one of my test boards with white encaustic paint and then went in an 'excavated " the colors ! This is an exciting exploration of the magic that the wax can create .  I love the moment , and action of the fluid encaustic colors as they bloom and blend . 
I hope you enjoy it ! See you next week :)


Supplies I used this week :
Some of the following links are affiliate links where I may receive a few cents back if you purchase them from Amazon. I am using it both as an easy way for you to find the products( or at least see what they look like )  and hopefully a way to continue to bring you weekly videos with new techniques and products :) 


                    

NOTE: the link I have for the encaustic medium this week is for a 5 lb bag. It also comes in 1 lb but the link to the store was too high in price  for just the 1lb and I don't want to steer you wrong on that :)
