Encaustic art


Have you tried encaustic art yet? I've spent the afternoon producing what can only be described as alien landscapes. The method is very simple, you melt colored waxes onto the sole plate of an iron (low temperature)  and then iron the melted wax onto glossy card. The results are different every time. You can add trees and leaves with the tip of the iron (or there are special tools) but mostly I just enjoyed seeing the pictures emerge. One word of warning - keep the windows closed while you create, last time I tried this an entire swarm of bees arrived in my garden. It may have been coincidence but you never know!
