encaustic class

inspired by the fall colors of lake placid
and browsing through bridgette guerzon mills blog
i went looking for some leaves to use in class today
i like the effect of layering the leaves
in between several layers of clear wax
which gave it a "fogged" look
detail from the center work
layers of orange , red ,
creme and copper leaf
then the bits of green
and finished off with sienna "wash"

These look wonderful. I have been intrigued by encaustic painting. I went to Barnes and Noble and looked at a few books. I looks like lots of fun. Messy but fun.
Xo,
Tammy

Neat! So does the wax preserve the color and prevent the leaves from drying up?
