Finally I Get My Hands Back On Some Wax!
For this piece we were given the assignment: Make an encaustic Piece that includes and image transfer and some type of controversial issue. I chose to do animal rights within the circus.
This is an encaustic collage on a 12x12 piece of Masonite, which includes: Acrylic paint, found objects and image transfer.
I really enjoyed this piece because it was the first time I was able to reunite with encaustic. I absolutely loved working with the encaustics in Art 4 Honors and couldn't wait to get my hands on them this year. This project was also a huge learning experience for me. It allowed me to become familiar with the encaustic wax and tools again as well as reminded me what the wax will allow me to do. I also learned a new image transfer technique that does not involve the image transfer paper that I used the year before. This piece showed me that it is extremely hard to put paint in between two layers of wax with out the paint going everywhere.
