Wax on Wednesdays Some Shellac Play !
Happy Wax on Wednesdays!
This week I thought it would be fun to play with some different effects
that are possible with shellac burn in an abstract landscape.
Shellac can burn fast or slow depending on the dry times. It
also depends on the heat application and the amount of heat that is
I tinted some clear shellac with Pearl Ex Antique bronze to add some
fun earthy darks into the landscape.
When I am preparing to do a landscape I always get my favorite
colors out in multiple mediums to have close buy. I show some R an F pigment sticks that
are my favorite colors for landscapes in the video but I don't end up
using them in this week's process :)
This is a fun way to explore the different effects that shellac
can have on the encaustic wax, and the pigments.
The video is a sped up process , but I allow several hours or even over night
for each layer of shellac to dry :)
