Wax on Wednesdays Multiple Layer Image Transfers !

Happy Wax on Wednesdays !
What is more fun than image transfers on an encaustic surface?
Multiple layers of image transfers !

The encaustic surface is unique in that you can create 
multiple layers of image transfers by 
carefully incorporating layers of clear medium in between. 

This also creates a beautiful depth to the images .

Once you get the hang of this technique infinite layers of 
transfers are possible!

I got the images for this piece from 
Graphics Fairy has many beautiful  images that are copyright free and 
you can also become a member. In some cases such as this 
French script she has even provided an image that is already reversed 
in a mirror image so that when it is transferred on the text is going the right way :)

Here is a direct link to the 2 images I used :
Bird Cage 

French Script 

I recommend simple images if this is your very first transfer on wax.
This script can easily be filled in with some India ink if a spot
is missed in the transfer.

Also make sure and reverse any images that have text so that they will read correctly
when transferred on to the encaustic surface. I did not notice the #20 on the bird cage
image and forgot to reverse it in the video :)

I am listing my printer in the supplies I used this week because I get asked ALOT what 
printer I use for transfers . I think Samsung  has an updated version of this printer now. 
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.
