Sometimes it is just fun to just paint.
Paint for the sake of painting.
My favorite approach is to just put my gloves on
and begin exploring color on a fused prepared encaustic board.
All of my landscape painting is done 90%
with my fingers and hands as my brush. I just love exploring that way. Its how I connect to my work.
Is it wrong ? Maybe . It's certainly not traditional painting , nor does it follow any rules. I just like to see what emerges
out of just using my hands as my tools.
Depends on how you look at it I guess :))
Supplies 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. 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.

My favorite heat gun and torch are listed here. The Iwatani torch head is my favorite torch for encaustic painting . It comes as just the torch head which attaches to the butane canisters as listed below. The second torch is a less expensive and more compact alternative.
