Happy Wax on Wednesday !
I ended up accumulating a huge stack of monotypes from all of the projects we did on Wax on Wednesdays last month! I decided this week to create some covers for journals for them to get them all sorted out. Journals are one of my favorite ways to house encaustic print making papers and I have accumulated a small library of them in the studio. It is a great way for me to reference all of the print making techniques I cave done over the years and for visitors to meander through .
These heavier prints done on Arches watercolor paper make perfect journal covers for all of the August Monotypes done both on Wax on Wednesdays and the Monday Warmup sessions on the Patreon channel. I wanted to keep with the botanical print making theme but expand on it some more and try out some more fun options for pigments :)
I ended up creating fun layers of rich warm tones with instant coffee and cool tones of green and turquoise india inks using geranium leaves from the garden.
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.
