Continuing my encaustic process for you all today. Encaustic medium is simply beeswax mixed with damar resin, which helps it harden up & reside on your wall. It is incredibly durable & goes back to Egypt surviving over 2000 years with no flaking or cracking. I like using @rfpaints encaustic medium for gorgeous smooth surfaces. Pigment is then added to the medium, heated, and voila, ready to go! I sometimes heat a second palette with larger coloured medium pots if I am working larger. Otherwise I melt the cakes right on the palette. I use hake brushes found @opusartsupplies, as you can’t use synthetic brushes with this kind of heat.
Today I posted a video on our YouTube channel with live swatching of the complete Pentel Hybrid Metallic and Milky. This art swatch is by @lado_artwork . She said it took her a long time but it was a FUN time. 😄 I have quite the list of requested videos to make in the coming week. Thanks for your requests! It helps me to prioritize. 😅

Bought myself a new light pad. 16.5 x 13.5, usable space about 14.5 x 11.5, about 1/4" thick. Has ruler in inches, a clip, and came with USB and plug, unlike most that just have USB. From Craftymint on Amazon. The old Light Box is retired. #lightpad #artsupplies #quiltapplique #quiltmarking #punchneedle
