I’ve been wanting to learn about encaustics and how that process may be incorporated with my digital prints. While I was teaching at Art Unraveled recently, I was able to take an Encaustic workshop from Patricia Seggebruch. She’s great and if you want to check out her book, it’s called “Encaustic Workshop.”
Working with this method was truly interesting along with challenging. Developing work while using the encaustic technique opens endless possibilities in journaling and collage along with some limitations. Here are some of my results from that workshop.
Digital on melted tyvek, dyed burlap, metal screen, encaustic
Dyed cheesecloth and burlap, print on heat distressed lutradur, print on paper, twigs, copper wire
Crocheted waxed linen, crocheted hemp, printed tyvek, crocheted wire, encaustic
