Please Note: This is the first blog post for the web site , however there are YEARS of fun Wax on Wednesdays posts on playswithpaper.blogspot.com .
New Beginnings. Feelings of good, strange , excitement . Excited for new opportunities, new adventures, putting away the sad but sometimes it creeps in . So begins empty nest syndrome :)
The first new adventure is starting this blog here on the sharireplogle.com site. I have posted artistic adventures on blog posts on Playswithpaper.blogspot.com since 2006 WOW ! Now continuing the adventure here on sharireplogle.com, hopefully everything will be all easier to find on one website :)
This week on Wax on Wednesdays, some fun bold new textures with dry wall texture spray to really amp it up in this landscape !
I am ALWAYS on the hunt for great textures to add in encaustic . Hardware store , dollar store, grocery store :) . I try to envision it all underneath the wax to see if it will be benificial in adding cool textures . (My family is used to it ) There are some rules, and criteria these items have to meet in order for it to be archival , but I get really excited when I believe something is going to play well with the encaustic wax!
If you are super excited about building textures and exploring more there is a library of encaustic workshops available 24/7 here on the site. If you enjoyed the techniques in this week's Wax on Wednesdays video I recommend Encausticology 101 Online Workshop for hours of step by step encaustic techniques !
The 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. Using the purchase link does not in any way raise the cost for you, and is the same link you would find on a regular Amazon Prime search , and the same links I use myself :) . Thank you so much 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 possible because Art tools can get pricey and we art supply "collectors" need to stick together ;) . Sometimes with weekly 40% off coupons basic items can be found at a better price.
