encaustic work

today was the day to get stuck into the encaustic work.  Had the frypan ready, the wax, the crystals, natural brushes, hot air gun.  What an interesting experience.  But hey, practice makes perfect, and I willneed a lot of practice to get it smooth, not too thick, getting the temperature correct,  scraping off the excess.  The end result however is so good.  Will have another go at it tomorrow.  Would love to hear anyone's comments if they are good at it, any advice will be accepted with thanks.

back to the pigpen

It has been about two years now since I have blogged, life goes in different directions, mainly fulltime work, when I would rather be down in the pigpen creating, but the world takes on another tack, shifts the goal posts.
But hey , I'm back now, so many things i want to do, first one is encaustic work.  Going to start tomorrow, have canvases and boards ready, the encaustic material, and the whole day.  I'll be back with some photos.
