Working with the Encaustic Hotplate

I recently pulled out my Hotplate and tried a few techniques. I promised not to put any pressure on myself but have fun and just play. Have a look at how it went and what kind of material I used. It was quite liberating :-)                                            Step One: Have Fun                      Keep in mind your work surface is hot so be careful!                       ...

Fun tips for your Stylus

     I JUST RECIEVED SOME FUN TIPS FOR YOUR STYLUS Icon shapes are very popular and used everywhere, so I added some fun tips with obvious meanings to the online shop.

Here they are! Some items, like A4 colored paper (except black) and stamps I just decided to put on sale for the fun of it. All products are new. Some have been grouped together to make sets.  All sales are final, with no refunds or exchanges - kind of like an online garage sale. But with way...

Posted by Bethany Handfield on

Enkaustikos Wax Medium is made from a 1:1 ratio of U.S. Pharmaceutical Grade Beeswax and Damar Resin.   Their XD Wax Medium features extra damar.  This Wax Medium has a higher content of damar resin than the original, giving it a thicker consistency when liquified. It also has a sticky tack while drying for easy texture build up and will stay pliable for a longer time than our original Wax Medium. Once cooled however, it is resistant to surface alterations from scraping or incising and offers a hard film. Like the original Wax Medium, XD can be used as a wax paint...
