"Poetry In Motion"
Encaustic is a very old technique used by the Greeks and Egyptian 3000 years ago. It is a medium
that uses melted wax and can be applied or
moved by various means such as brushes, heat guns, torches, pallet knives, ...............
or really anything the artist chooses to initiate into the process.
The art piece can be created with lots of texture, no texture with a very smooth surface or a combination of both. Mono printing is another technique used in the application of the wax and/or movement.
In this particular piece of art I layered various colors of wax using a drip method, heat gun, blow dryer and sanding. The base on which this piece is created is on encaustic board. However, the art can be developed and the final piece of art completed on wood panel or sometimes I use rice paper or watercolor paper which is stabilized.
Below you will my encaustic station or work table in my studio. There is another piece in process which I am hoping to complete tomorrow.
