    I'm a "lurker" but just had to post tonight....OMG!! I just love the creativity with the bees wax and the colors!! I will have to investigate this technique more! (I think my favorite is the one you picked...and the bird...that one just seems so peaceful to me)


    How stunning Suse. I adore all of them - and the colours are amazing. I never knew that encaustic colours were made up with beeswax - and I am sure I have some old typewriter carbon paper somewhere.

    We have a beekeeper in the village and I have a wonderful block of wax from him. It smells divine and doesn't have any 'bodily parts' of bees etc. I guess he strains it.


    Now use those cool metal tools and wheels that Ten Second Studio has with the foil and you get some wonderful patterns! Same with the Graphite Paper. Wax is such a wonderful medium to play with. Loved how the "Looking back on Life" piece turned out.


    wow that is awesome. cant wait to play when i get home from work.

    What totally gorgeous work Suze.


    Thanks Suze for such great instructions for this new technique. I got some great new foils last week to play with, all i need now are the encaustic wax colours. Will definately be giving this a go as i really like abstract art.

    Been searching for key ring with Johnny Depp as mad hatter & there is nothing here for us to purchase that is close to the quality of yours. The film doesn't seem to have taken off here quite so much. Am very disappointed but will keep looking.

    Also been searching in shops for metal cookie cutters, again so hard to find; eventually found a set of 9 large different shapes for £5 from John Lewis. Still no luck with mini doughnut pans either; my search goes on & on.....

    You take care & enjoy coming up with new techniques :-) xxx

    The encaustics are wonderful. Where did you get the stamp?


    Just amazing to get something entirely new and so inspiring! Thanks for inventing it and I wonder if you will be doing this in England next visit?
    I hope to be there as I enjoyed the last melt pot workshop sooooo much.
