wax about wax painting
I developed my encaustic wax technique by covering paper with a thick coat of melted beeswax, occasionally over a colored underlay of water based pigment. The wax is highly resistant to yellowing, weathering, moisture, and high temperatures - more so than oil paint - and comes in different colors, of which I prefer 'Burnt umber', 'Burnt sienna', 'Black', and mixes of these three to create an overall uniform tone. After the wax cools, I scratch out images from the dark box. Then, I might use oil paints or color pencils to apply more detailed variations in color and tone. When all is finished, the artwork is on a two -dimensional surface, but has a slight three-dimensional feel to it. This is the effect that I am always looking for, giving me the comfortable feel of both painting and sculpturing.
