A Little Something Different !
Happy Wax on Wednesdays!
Every once in a while it is fun to explore a little something different.
Exploring different pathways often leads to new revelations in your own art
practice. New little shifts and short journeys provide a fresh look at your approach similar to
having those "fresh eyes" on a painting.
Not that we will be gone for long and stray off of our path, but I do approve
of the "playing is learning" theory and believe it promotes new
avenues in your art approach.
Your relationship with your art
is like any other as time goes on you want to not only work at that
relationship but also keep it fresh and exciting!
For February I thought it would be fun to do a little
something different each week for Wax on Wednesdays.
This week , let's see the differences in an encaustic finish for
collage and a resin finish.
I did not go over this point in the video but I do not seal my encaustic collage
with the matte medium first because it is an acrylic based product that is making the paper
'Not absorbent" so that the resin can't get in and saturate it . If I apply encaustic over that non absorbent surface it cannot absorb into the paper layers and has no reason
to stay, and most likely will eventually separate from the acrylic sealed surface.
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.
