This week playing around with some of my favorite techniques in mark and texture.
I love using graphite in mixed media art. Seeing grungy, graffiti like writing, and marks, with graphite
is one of the things that makes my heart sing. But how can graphite be applied on top of an
encaustic surface ? There are a couple of ways to achieve this look on your encaustic surface and
this week I show one of the ways it can be achieved .
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.

NOTE: I could not locate the 4x4x2" wood panels on Amazon so I have listed a 5x5 x3/4"
This workshop is NOT just for beginners to encaustic, but also those wanting to further build their technique and knowledge base in the wonderful art of encaustic . This workshop goes over ALL of the basics including getting started and set up, and then features an Encaustic Technique Library Arsenal with projects that build in skill level from basic to advanced. I am super excited about the format of this workshop being an incredibly useful tool for wherever you are in your encaustic art journey and be able to build your vocabulary of encaustic techniques with comprehensive video tutorials and of course incredibly fun encaustic projects that you have forever access to.
