One of the reasons I love working with encaustic is that I love the organic nature of the medium including my
usual substrate which is wood. In working with wood I am not limited to a birch board panel . Any wood
is fair game and it is fun to scour the lumber dept for some fun and exciting alternatives!
One of my favorite things to do is peruse through lumber deptartments picturing everything
delightfully drenched in wax. (What would the employees think if they knew that ?)
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.
