Encaustic art has become my favorite artistic technique that I’ve developed from Kendall College of Art & Design of Ferris State University. I’d like to show you my first examples that specializes in creative wax art or painting.
Wrap duck tape around the MDF board to seal the wax painting
The wax painting is created with bee wax and color pigments heated to a liquid form. Pour the liquid on the palette. The liquid form becomes a soft seal and hardens over time.
Use clippers to grab the hot liquid to avoid burning fingers.
During a moment when the layers are still soft, use different tools to create patterns and fun effects in the wax.
