Wax Play Day

On Saturday my friends Lisa, Carolyn, and Ellen came over to do a little encaustic wax. We had a great time, and finished some wonderful pieces! We turned my kitchen into an encaustic studio with 3 electric griddles, 1 hot plate, torches, heat guns, etc. and spent the entire day doing encaustic wax! Here is one of the pieces I finished, and this time I decided to extend the wax onto the sides of the piece instead of staining the sides of the board. I have several more pieces started, and hopefully will have time to prepare a couple for an upcoming encaustic exhibit at Kilgore College in October.
