Bits and Pieces Encaustic Wax painting 5X7
This is my first go at painting with encaustics.
I used archival mat board and of course I had to stray from the ordinary by starting on black instead of white. Quite a challenge. When I am painting the colors are clear and beautiful and then as it cools it gets WAXY! Of course.
The biggest learning is that when I am watching instructions from the United States I need to remember that they are talking Fahrenheit and not Celsius! That's pretty obvious but it just didn't occur to me until I saw the wax starting to bubble.
Maybe I shouldn't admit that kind of an error.
Every mistake is a lesson learned.
I should be smart pretty soon.
Blessings for a great day.
