Using Faux Encaustics

“Peas In A Pod,” 12″ x 12″, Mixed media on deep cradle

Recently I‘ve been exploring new techniques with mediums and found several variations of faux encaustics (I don’t trust myself with anything that’s hot). I used a pourable recipe developed by Sandra Duran Wilson (Acrylic Painting for Encaustic Effects) on this painting,“Peas In A Pod.”

While it’s not as heavy as her spreadable recipe, my opinion is that there is more clarity for transferred images with the pourable recipe. Of course, Wilson encourages readers to try their own variations.
