A New Addiction

Just what I need…another interest!

The second joggles.com course I enrolled in was Enchanting Encaustics with Carol Murphy.

I’ve had to wait a while until I had gathered all my supplies and found a few spare hours. This morning was the first chance I had to have a play. Oh my! What can I say…I’ve never really tried collage before & I’ve never tried encaustic art work.

Basically you hold the iron upside down and melt special wax blocks onto it. This melted wax is then applied to the artwork. It took a bit of practice to learn how much wax to apply to the iron & how much pressure to ‘iron’ with but I am pleased with the results of my first go, and will definitely do some more.
