Hey hey hey!!! A warm welcome to the second Wax On Wednesday...pun intended! A BIG thanks for all the comments on the first Wax On Wednesday!!! I loved all the feedback and appreciate you all so much!
The excitement for me is still huge on my second day of making encaustic wax scenes. I played around a lot more after watching more videos on Encaustic TV. They make it look so easy, but I have to say Day 2 was a little easier for me as I am getting the hang of the iron. I hope you enjoy these.
|It's difficult to see this, but there are layers of tissue paper and Tissue Wrap along with Encaustic Medium. You can actually see the layers on top of each other upon close up inspection, like 3D. It's very cool.|
|This is a simple scene with the wax tree and grass, and the sky is Dylusions. It resists the wax.|
|I used the Mini Melt Iron to make these flowers and used Dylusions for the background.|
|A simple desert scene. I am still learning to make lines for trees and plants.|
|I love making a monochromatic scene with the wax. It's really fast to do as well. I think I made this one in about 2 minutes.|
|I watched the video on the fantasy scenes and then made this. Another quick make, and learning to make reflections in water was so interesting.|
|This is my favorite scene so far. I rubbed the wax away to make the stream, and then rubbed blue wax on with my finger.|
|My husband is taking this to his office. It's not often he likes something I make so much he steals it. I still need practice making dragonflies, but the colors and textures on this is great.|
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
