My interest in encaustics sparked back in October when I saw one in a gallery while in Aspen. The next few months I researched the materials, which are expensive and synthetic when you buy encaustic medium from an art store.
I decided to make some of my own. a few months later I was cooking up wax based natural paint. Now, I have a recipe of my own which has been altered through trial and error.
I've started making it in bulk and coloring it in smaller batches, creating these round encaustic medium chuncks of my own (my DIY version=using throw away cupcake tins for my molds.)
