Lavender on encausticbord

This new video just uploaded to the Art In Wax YouTube channel shows me painting in my little studio area here in Southend.

I introduce myself and then give a brief walk around my studio set up for the day and then paint a picture of some lavender flowers.

Encaustic Techniques

Encaustic art comes in a very wide and varied range of styles. It is a wonderful medium to work in and artists around the world use many different types of wax and with many different styles and techniques of working which all fall under the umbrella of “Encaustic”.

Different Styles

I myself work in different ways with wax. In fact I use two different types of wax and different supports and styles when working in each of these waxes.

When working on gloss card I use a wax paint that is suitable for this support and when working on, wood panels and absorbent supports, and the Ampersand Arts Encausticbord as in this video I use the wonderful handmade paints of R & F Paints.

I first started using the R & F paints last year when I reviewed their Encaustic starter kit and blogged about it : www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/encaustic-starter-kit-review/ and since then I have lots of their wax and love to work with it, when working onto these supports and with this formula of wax I layer the wax and fuse between layers, the effects are amazing from strong colours to misty effects when clear wax is layer over colour to give depth and softness.

I also love working in more of a free and abstract way with the deeper layers, using hot air to move and form the wax and layering to create pieces of art just a bit different from my other work !!!

Pieces of Art In Wax in both styles are available to buy online via my online store : Shop Art In Wax. If you don’t see a picture you are looking for in the shop please contact me.
