Encaustic Play: a fun, hot mess
A friend of mine travels all over the United States teaching classes on metal clay, fused glass etc. and had mentioned she had purchased at cost some encaustic supplies. I leapt at the chance to share them with her, as I had been wanting to try this art form for a long time. She arrived with a bunch of colored disks of wax, a heatable stylus, a mini iron and some brushes. We watched Youtube videos on how to do it as we explored, and really enjoyed ourselves figuring out how to make an encaustic painting. It wasn't as easy as I thought making the wax move where you want it to, but it'll be a work in progress. Here is my result of playing around.
