Encaustc Workshop Day 2

On Day 2 we learned
  • how to use a stylus pen to draw with wax
  • how to do a monotype by drawing on the hot plate with wax
  • combining piment sticks with wax
The R&F materials we used (pigment sticks, block wax and mediums) were luscious and vibrant.

The tutor, Daniella, did some gorgeous demonstrations  - it took quite some perseverence on the part ot the participants to replicate some of the techniques.

The freezing cold weather did not help.......
Here are my notes and experiments from the day
