I have always loved packing up little art supplies, and creating little creativity kits, to take with me on road trips. Usually you have to think small, compact , and if flying a good choice are things that are dry and won’t get all over if things get bumped around. If its a car trip there is quite a bit more leeway. This week I went down to visit my daughter at school and packed a few things to create with while she was in classes. I brought my latest 2 cyanotypes and some cold wax so that I could apply a finish to them. And also a travel kit for cyanotypes in case I found a good spot to create some more.
I decided that I wanted to add a pop of color to one of the prints and was lucky to find an art store near by the hotel. Oil sticks are not something I would normally pack in my suitcase although I have been tempted :)
This week’s Wax on Wednesday was done from the hotel room . It ‘s so fun to adapt to creating with just limited supplies and I feel like sometimes that thinking outside the box excitement gets creativity flowing and rejuvenates inspiration for when you return home to your creative space again !
Having fun on Wax on Wednesdays on YouTube ? Last April with uncertain times, I launched the Patreon channel with the intention of bringing artists mini workshops every week in the form of longer Wax on Wednesdays videos with step by step commentary , Monday Warmup videos , and monthly projects. There are 4 tiers on the channel to choose from and you can move up and down in tiers easily, see all past content for your chosen tier through the beginning of the channel last April, and subscribe and unsubscribe at any time. It is a way of getting a lot of content without the larger investment of a full workshop price. You can check out the channel any time at https://www.patreon.com/sharireplogle
Have a wonderful weekend and happy creating !
