Last month I took a wonderful encaustic workshop at R&F Paints in Kingston, NY. If you’d like to read the earlier or later post, please click here: Encaustic Workshop Review, Part 1 and Encaustic Workshop Review, Part 3.
This glorious blast of color is a partial shot of the gorgeous paint sticks available for use while at R&F. I’ve only been there twice, but each time I am drawn to this wall with eyes wide open. So many possibilities with this array of rich colors!
Today I’d like to share the artist trading cards (ATCs) I worked on at the workshop.
Here they are in the initial stages (maybe 5 layers of encaustic medium at this point, plus some pigment paint sticks).
That old piece of metal mesh is one of my favorite mark making tools. I used it as a stencil on the ATCs.
More medium, plus the stencil and pigment sticks. I liked where they were going at this point.
I added some bits of torn paper and fused them here. They’re not finished, and I’m hoping to have time to get back to them in February. Do you do encaustic work? I bought all the tools when I took my first workshop at R&F in 2014, and I hope to devote some real time to it this year.
