Paint fast onto a hard board--we'll use clayboard, and let it cover and cool. Then take your torch (as in above photo) and fuse that layer. Create lots of layers and create lots of melted wonder! Research the work of one of my favorite encaustic artists, Jasper Johns and see how he worked with this medium.
My flag is done somewhat in the flavor of Jasper's but is very much my own. It is a diptych --made from 2 boards. It is for sale in my gallery, and you can contact me for info! ;)
Encaustic is expensive to do. The paint either is made (very time and labor intensive) or expensive to be purchased ready-to-go. This is passed on to the consumer. Just so people know. ;)
I learned this process just over a year ago in Carmel, California. It has been so much fun. I hope to share it with some of YOU!
