encaustic experiment #2 with wax, wax pigment, dry paper towels with dye, metallic pigment powder
Did this yesterday. It is a small piece, guessing around 6"x5". With this I practiced putting each layer on thinly to reach a build up. Putting the layers on thinly gave me more control and more time to think about what I wanted to do. I'm more interested in using paper/fabric for color and wax for the clear glaze...to keep this going, I have all the supplies I need for the most part. The addition would be keeping in beewax/resin and wood supports. My heat source is for fusing the layers is an embossing heat gun which I already had and I purchased a candy thermometer and melted my wax in a dedicated sauce pan.
