Encaustic Mixed Media – Digital Art and Wax

Experimenting with wax

I have been experimenting again with wax! This time with printed digital media and wax.

I am showing the results below as I think it is good to try new things, but before you read on, I want to say that this was a fun project and one that I have had buzzing around in my head for a long time, but I have concluded that this is not a route I want to take Art In Wax – not at this time anyway.

Creating digital graphic mixed media pictures

Having been a web developer and designer for many years and make digital graphics for websites and other online media, facebook banners, online shop fronts etc etc I thought it might be fun to try and join my encaustic art work with some digital graphics I created to make a mixed media style painting.

Steam Punk Inspired

I have a fondness for some of the steam punk styling that is very popular at the moment, I myself am drawn to elements of this style and have a couple of pieces of modest jewelry that reflects this trend.

I especially like the clocks and cogs elements and it is from this angle I decided to experiment with.

The paintings below are ACEO (3.5 x 2.5 inch small pieces of Art) and have elements created on my computer, I have put together some cogs and spokes together with some flowers and a watch and chain I drew some time ago which form the printed part of the picture, then using hot wax painted some roses and flower vines.

My encaustic gloss card wouldn’t print well on my printer so I have use photo paper, which is thinner than my regular painting surface, I layered clear wax over the printed parts first then added layers of wax including some gold wax then painted on the flowers and leaves in wax using my stylus ….. I have hard backed these as the paper was so thin …..

A Bit different from the normal Art In Wax

This was a bit of challenge I set myself, painting onto the thin card wasn’t easy but I am glad I tried this mixed media style of artwork ……. they are fun and a bit different from the normal Art In Wax………

    Hazel I love these, they’re very beautiful. I like steampunk too, and have some cogs etc waiting to be incorporated into mixed media artwork.

    Hi Hazel, it’s interesting to try new things and see where they take you. I really like all the paintings, especially the vivid pinks and purples. Julie

    Thanks for the comments, Stephie Julie and Hazel

    Yes I do like to experiment and challenge what I can do with the wax, I am a fan of some areas of Steam Punk and wanted to try out these as a mixed media – two of these ACEO collectible art cards have now been sold
