Encaustic is a medium that combines beeswax and resin, and the resulting art is unique to say the least; self-described addicts say they love the medium’s sweet smell, rich colors, unmatchable texture, transparency and finish. Susan Tuttle, author of Exhibition 36, along with artist Sandy Lupton, offers a primer on the materials and techniques you’ll need to get started, along with a gallery of samples.
Shells, small stones, sand and leaves are just some of the natural elements Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch, author of Encaustic Workshop, has used in her work. In this tutorial, she shows you, step by step, the beautiful work you can create using encaustic wax techniques and your favorite bits from nature.
Texture is what working with encaustic is all about. Whether you want to create a finish that is smooth as glass or a deep, three-dimensional image, you can accomplish that … with wax. Learn more with these techniques from Encaustic Workshop!
Josie Cirincione, author of Collage Lost and Found, uses beeswax to attach elements of her collages to one another, but you’ll see her use beeswax in a variety of other intriguing manners, too. Beeswax can be used as a surfacing agent, a textural element, even an accent element. The sky’s the limit! She also offers tips and hints and about where to find appropriate supplies and how best to work with this old- is-new-again medium.
