Just could not resist taking an online encaustic class when I heard it was being offered. Encaustic is working with beeswax and pigments. Love ♥ the instructor Judy Wise and am beyond pleased with her daily written instruction, instructional videos and personal feedback via class facebook page and yahoo pages. I'm learning so much from her and so many generously talented people in the class - and my workshop is all set up so that I can just go in the next room and practice, post my work online and get immediate feedback. How cool is that? No driving alone late at night lugging art supplies, no worry about snowstorms. Absolute heaven. Finally technology I can cheer about! If you are at all interested in encaustic, I highly recommended taking Judy's class.
This one is practice with laser copy transfer, inclusion, accretion, stencil and stamping. I used some of the rust fabric I made as the background. I wish I had placed her face better, but it came out pretty cool.
