Happy Wax on Wednesdays !
I hope that wherever you are in the world, that you and your
loved ones are safe .
I wanted to continue our theme of texture this month but if you can't get out to get new supplies, or boards,
etc. ,encaustic is the very best medium to create with ! ( I may be slightly biased :)
Because encaustic can completely be recycled !
Not just painted over , you can do that with any medium.
Encaustic can be completely reactivated and reused !
Today I am taking the 2 paintings from last week's Wax on Wednesday and using a technique
I call "overfusing" to move the pigment around and create 2 completely different paintings
with no added wax !
I took the scrap wood from all of the houses I made in "Encausticology Home Stories" workshop and use them to create stamps for great texture in my paintings. This week I created 3 stamps from small stones in my backyard . I sorted the natural stones into different groups according to size that would create different depths in my wax. I want to have a similar depth on each stamp to make as even impression as possible with the natural rocks.
Supplies I used this week:
