encaustic class

the next evolution in my quest for
learning about texture
we decided to experiment with food
rice, pasta, sesame seeds, rosemary and loose tea
it was fun adding these elements to the wax
some embedded and some on top

detail of the above work
i painted the the whole surface with a taupe wax
then added in some green, ochre and browns

here is a close up of the black tea
added on top
mostly seeds
----------------
my second canvas was more mono chromatic
you can really see the food
if you look real close you can see some the sesame seeds

rice and small bits of spaghetti
plus some discarded bristles from my brush

Except for the wax, totally edible art!

Absolutely beautiful and intriguing. Looks like it's a good idea to play with your food.

Oh my!!! This is absolutely fantastic, stunning and gorgeous!!! Who would have thought tea could be so inviting outside the teapot. I'm just getting started with encaustic and this is a huge inspiration!!!
