encaustic class

it's been 2 months since my last class
it was good to be back
i really wasn't sure what to do today
so my teacher suggested working with
the heat gun and a palette knife
to create texture
it was fun just playing
with no real goal in mind
other than to see what can happen!!
two detail areas
on the left i added white oil paint right out
of the tube and then heated it up
cool crackle effect
on the right i got more of a marbling effect

on the second board
i practiced the same technique
adding a few more colours

i can't wait 'til next week to experiment some more!

WOW! Envious of all your fun! Beautiful. All in the name of experiment. How nice. Thank you for sharing.

Great to see you having so much fun! Who is your teacher, I lost the thread on that? This medium has the potential to ruin us all, no I'm just kidding but once hooked it consumes, some say "crippling medium" I say seductive medium. Ok, my wax is ready and I hope to see more soon. Bravo.
