Happy Wax on Wednesday!
On January 27, we created natural Skelton leaves to use in art. Since then several projects have been created to use with these lovely leaves! Today I am using a cyanotype that I created using these skeleton leaves on very fine Kozo paper and embedding the paper, a fun rice paper, and one of the actual skeleton leave into the encaustic surface.
This is possible in part because all of these items are very light weight, absorbent , and therefore will embed easily into the wax. Tip: All patience and let you board cool down in between stages when embedding . A super warm board can lead to the wax smooshing out from under the embedded items and cause problems .
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 .
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.
