Wax on Wednesdays Encaustic Painting Paper Mache Bowl Vessels

 Happy Wax on Wednesdays !

This week working 3 dimensionally on some encaustic vessels. 
These vessels are some of my paper mâché bowls that are
dried and ready to be painted with encaustic. 
Paper mâché is the perfect substrate for encaustic because it is 
sturdy, absorbant , and accepts the wax beautifully in a HUGE
variety of ways . 
Any pigments that are used in painting with encaustic on panel 
can be used on these forms. 

This week I am prepping these bowls for painting. They are beautiful with 
just translucent layers of wax and can be left just like this. 
Next week I will be adding some pigments to them in
part 2 of this month's series. 

If you would like to dive in to the working with
encaustic 3 dimensionally,
