Happy Wax on Wednesday!
I have been literally obsessed with cyanotype printing this year.
I have mounted many to panel and given them an encaustic finish as I would
with my traditional photographs, but lately I am drawn to a softer cold wax finish as well.
Cold wax provides a soft satiny luster if buffed out once completely dry. Or it can be left
a velvety matte just like encaustic. Cold wax does not need to be fused or heated in any way
and dries and cures naturally on the paper. Multiple layers can be added . As a finish , I usually
apply 2-3 thin coats of the medium.
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.
