Getting Waxy

I recently took the plunge and bought an encaustic palette and the various other accoutrements needed for encaustic painting! It’s been quite the experience. I knew that encaustic wax would dry quickly, but I had no idea just how fast the wax hardens on the brush! For my next encaustic pieces, I plan to invest in some electric brush tips, to keep the wax pliable while I transfer it from the palette to the panel. The pieces below are mine, with the exception of the left-most, which was made by the one and only Veronica Primerano.

Encaustic Samples, 2.5×3.5, encaustic wax and decorative paper on encausticbord. Not for sale.
