Here’s the first one I did using my iron. I obviously need to buy some actual encaustic wax since the ones I made myself were too sheer for the techniques I wanted to try. I still think it came out pretty cool!
I used some molds that I had previously made to create a 3D encaustic wax painting. I also added a paper doily. I hope to look back on this some day to see how far I’ve come in my creativity!
So , here’s my first try at encauatics . I had my fiance guess what it was and he said “jellyfish” . Technically that’s not what I was going for, but hey, its abstract and can be whatever the viewer wants ! That’s my opinion anyways ;-). Hope your ready to see more encaustic paintings soon!
