Wax Lyrical - I have long been fascinated with the subject of Encaustic Art, melting wax to create many layers and trapping pieces of fibres and papers between the layers of melted wax just seems magical to me. So for this challenge I want to see some wax on your projects, whether it's just dribbled, melted and then stamped into or a wax embellishment as long as you include some stamping or stencilling the choice is yours !
I had big plans for this challenge after meeting the Lovely Ruth on a course where we used wax.... but things didn't go quite to plan and although I made my wire object my fabric didn't work with my beeswax so watch this space! I fell back on encaustic wax to create backgrounds and fussycut stamped images to add ontop.
I did have fun with these - I love these new stamps from elenazinskiart at paperartsy....I decided to create a few fields using the waxes and the encaustic iron.
Here's the first - love the features created by the wax on that hillside!
In this one I tried to do some wax flowers in the foreground...
This one is a bit more abstract but if you squint you can make a landscape out!!!
Have fun and join in with us!!!
