Showing you today a small wax painting with a big punch of sunset colors.
This little beauty measures 6 1/4 inch square and I started with a base of encaustic wax with sky colors and a few wisps of white clouds. Then I decided to play with a new toy I got myself for Christmas - cold wax.
Cold was is still wax but is a thick paste that is cloudy clear and really picks up the color from oil paints big time - learned that pretty fast.
Then you can 'paint ' it on with a palette knife or brushes - this one was done mostly with palette knife type tools and a little brush work.
I did several up the same day but plan on adding to the other - I decided to leave this one just as it was.
I will definitely be playing with the cold wax a lot more!!!
All for today - off to work and then water aerobics after work.....
