Encaustic Expressions

Birds'n Bees, Butterflies'nWings

Painting with a combination of Beeswax & Damar Resin creates ENCAUSTIC wax. The fluidity that happens when you heat this medium, to it's molten level, is exciting and inviting. Each stroke slides across the canvas deminishing the imagery underneath, yet leaves a translucent footprint of what was.

One of my favorite stencils, the honeycomb. Layering clear or colored beeswax over the stencil, then heating it and pulling it out of the wax.

Painting the Honeycomb

After loading up the stencil with Encaustic wax, I let it cool then paint it gently with Oil paint. Then the excess is rubbed off leaving a slight tint to the wax and developed darkened fine lines, in between the built up wax.
