How I love Encaustic

April 12, 2019

Oh how I love Encaustic, lemme count the ways:-
 

1. The lusciousness of the medium moving and dancing on the canvas.
 

2. How cathartic it is using a propane torch to paint your feelings into a molten mix of wax, pigment and damar resin.
 

3. How surprising it can sometimes be.
 

4. The shiny-ness of the end product..soooooo shiny and smooth.
.

I'm happy with how this abstract piece turned out. I find that I gravitate to creating pieces like this one when I'm struggling with an idea or a feeling. Today's feeling felt like fiery layers of orange hidden under soothing waves of blue. Who knew feelings had colors? Do yours?
