I want to discover what happens when mixed media is mixed with wax. In its purest form, encaustic painting is as simple as applying melted beeswax onto an absorbent surface – but I want to learn more about how I could incorporate it as another medium for my practice. After researching encaustic artists, I went to Lisa Feyen to observe her studio practice with encaustic. She has spent time researching encaustic methods and products, and was happy to share her knowledge with me and Leanne in a mini workshop. The above images are a result of this session.
Encaustic is a dynamic medium where anything goes and the endless possibilities of what could happen are exciting for me. With practice and patience anyone can develop skills to be a successful encaustic artist.
