I have wanted to do hot wax encaustics for a long time. I don't have the proper ventilation in my studio so I haven't tried it yet. I have been experimenting around with faux encaustics though and am liking the results. You use acrylic paint instead of oil and different mediums.
I usually don't like doing landscapes as I did so many of them as a beginning painter many years ago. But I can see a new more interesting way to do them now through encaustics and collage.
I started the process using pages from an old book. I rescued it from the trash and repurposed it. This is a mixed media painting. I hope you can see the many layers on the blog as that is what makes it so interesting.
