Wax on Wednesdays Mark Making Week 2 !

Happy Wax on Wednesdays ! 

This week using a heated stylus tool with several different bits that can be changed out for fun effects in the wax!

This tool can be used not only to incise line into the encaustic surface , but
also to apply paint onto the wax . The struggle was achieving
uniformity in the marks by adjusting the temperature of the tool so that the
wax was not too drippy .
The same was true for incising line and also the stamping bits. If the tool is too
hot the line in the  wax will collapse in on itself essentially defeating the purpose.

Supplies I used this week :

Each week I list the supplies I used in the video here on the blog for you so that you can see and easily find the items used for that week's  technique . 
If you purchase items from the links provided it sometimes generates a few cents in commission  which goes right back in to creating videos for you on the youtube channel. It  does not raise the cost for you in any way, and is the same link you would find on a regular amazon prime search . Thank you ahead for you support of Wax on Wednesdays in any way ! Also , although the photos here can help you easily find the product . I also recommend that you look at your local art /hobby store to make sure you are getting the lowest price. Sometimes with weekly 40% off coupons basic items can be found at a better price.

This top tool on the list is the one I used in the video . I have had it forever and when I looked on the original insert it is a wood burning tool . There are most likely many wood burning tools out there that would work very similar to this one . The only thing I would strongly recommend is a temp dial so that you can adjust the temp according to your needs . 

I have also listed some other heat stylus tools that I found here on the supply list. I have not used every single one  on the list but  just added them for fun . The taking iron I do use often for collage and added it as a heated tool to use for encaustic . 

Other Studio News!
The holiday art walk at Essex Studios was super fun ! 
Saturday we did pours in the studio with Ms. Reagan at the demo table.
Looking forward to the Spring Art Walk in 2019. 

We had finished enough tiles to create a "Pour Tree" 
for the art walk :)

"Bindy the Artsy Frenchie" was adopted last month as a friend for "Chip the
studio manager" !
 They were fast friends and as soon as she has all of her 
puppy vaccinations she will be coming to the studio under Chip's tutelage .

get more exciting when she can go places :)
