Wax on Wednesdays Adding Stencils to Your Encaustic Surface!

Stencils are a fun way to add some pattern and mark making to your encaustic painting. 

When I am using a stencil I usually do not use the entire stencil at once. I am looking to add small hints of mark and pattern randomly throughout the painting. Using a small corner , or a favorite part of the stencil and possibly turning it in different directions to create variation in my marks. 

This week I am showing how to add a stencil with both soft pastels and oil paint sticks. Both work equally well , and should be fused into the encaustic surface after adding. 

The supplies I used this week :

Here are the stencils I used from Stencil Girl Website:
