Happy Wax on Wednesdays !
It is a lot of fun to add collage elements to photo encaustic. But , what if your collage elements don't go with the overall tone of your image ? I usually print my images in black and white when I am adding other elements in . This way I can tone the image to match whatever ephemera I may add. This week I chose some yummy rust stained tissue and a creamy rice paper extra on the fibrous texture ! Staining the image with coffee will be perfect to warmup the tone of this image to go with the rusted ephemera.
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 .
NOTE: I used the 8x10 cradled panels with 7/8 " depth but could not locate those this week on Amazon, so instead I
am listing the gallery profile 8x10 inch panels which are 1.5 " gallery depth.
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 so much! 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.
