Happy Wax on Wednesdays !
At the beginning of each Fall season I get in the mood for some encaustic collage . Used teabags are wonderful to incorporate into these collage pieces because they are both light weight, absorbent, and they take printing with inks like india and sumi with beautiful detail !
The sumi ink I am using this week has very subtle gold tones in it giving it a light lustre . I also add some instant coffee for more depth to the already tea stained bags.
It is fun to acquire a stack of these tea bag papers and have a printing day ! Simply hang them to dry and then unfold them carefully , emptying out the used tea.
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.

I love the tea bag staining and layering!!! Does regular or encaustic gesso work as well? Also, your music library is so wonderful. What is that music? Could you include the names of your music selections. I want to make a Create playlist.
