Happy Wax on Wednesdays !
This week continuing the fun creating some exciting floral prints
on the Gel Press Plate with oil sticks. With the small exception of using the brayer
to smooth out the background layers, there are no tools involved in creating
these fun florals !
I find these prints are very relaxing to create. There is never a mistake on the gel press plate
because you can either roll it back out , or smooth out and re-do with your gloved hand .
This freedom gives you the opportunity to play and explore until you are ready to print !
Some of these florals were done completely by hand including shaded back grounds without even the use of the brayer. Finger painting with oil sticks
is one of my favorite things and that goes double for the gel plate!
Full video for how I created these florals can be seen on the Wax on Wednesdays extended version
on the new Patreon page here : https://www.patreon.com/sharireplogle
The All New Patreon Page has 4 levels of extra content and mini tutorials to choose from . The "Busy Bee " level is the extended Wax on Wednesday content brought to you each week there is a Wax on Wednesdays post. All of the upper levels also receive the Wax on Wednesdays bonus painting content plus whatever that level offers !
I started the page on Patreon because it was a wonderful way to bring extra painting fun to you without the larger expense of a full
workshop. The levels go from just 2.99 - 19.99.
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 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.

Please Note: I used the Enkaustikos 10-18" plate in the video and it fits perfectly on the griddle I use. It is a bit pricey although still cheaper than and R and F heated pallet or the hot box. I have also included several smaller
sizes in these plates all the way down to a cute 6x6" plate that you can pop right on the griddle :)
