Happy Wax on Wednesdays !
This week creating a collaged background on panel with some of the botanical oil prints from this week's Monday Warmup video. These were done on Hanshi rice paper which are thin and absorb well into the encaustic surface. They also take the detail of the botanical images very well.
There are so many wonderful opportunities for applications for these fun botanical monototypes . If you have stacks of gel prints (not the acrylic kind :) , or mono types stacking up in your studio, try creating some fun encaustic collaged backgrounds with them !
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.
