Yes, a good art day starts with a cuppa tea
and then we get to add the creativity and the wax !!
Day 2 of the altered book with wax continues...
These 2 pages are done using the really lovely pigment colors from the Miles Conrad collection of encaustic wax.
My friend Judy Stabile created the face which I added to my book.
The face in this page is done with a transfer to wax technique
Here's Judy creating the process
She works on a hot palette and uses Encaustic wax sticks
Then, because she's working on a hot palette and drawing with the wax sticks everything stays liquid so she can create a monoprint transfer
Here are some other pages from my book
and, some of the other students work...like hand stitching
front of the book cover, all waxed
(student) Julie did some 'digging' and created quite an interesting paper dimension
and her altered book
her book cover (check out the Perfect Pearls Mists) over wax
and, of course there was class nourishment...!!
There's so much more to show you....so...after some retail therapy tomorrow I'll blog a bunch more....show you what Wendy's been up to !!! You'll love it.
