I got some copper wire from my local hardware store. This is a very large gauge wire but it is fun
to use a variety of gauges for this technique . It also does not have to be copper . I use copper because it
is very easy (even at this thick gauge) to simply manipulate it by hand without using any tools,just bend it and go.
This one simple handmade tool can now create a huge variety of marks on the encaustic surface
by slightly heating the end you are using for just a couple of seconds on the griddle or hot plate.
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.
