i have dabbled in encaustics and like so much about it.
first of all the smell of wax is yummy, the unpredictable
quality, the soft translucence like looking through a dream.
but sometimes talking out all of the equipment involved,
having a day warm enough to leave the windows open,
and the patience isn't a luxury that is available. i saw this golden
video showing faux encaustic options. i used matt soft gel medium
mixed with fluid matt medium and a tiny bit of golden quinacradone
nickel azo gold and applied the mixture with a small palate knife,
there are other recipes that i intend to try in the future.
let me know if you try it.
here is the golden video i watched.
sharing with paint party friday
have a lovely week!
