This is the month of learning new things. Hannah showed me how to do photo transfers with encaustic wax yesterday in addition to covering digital prints with wax. I have an idea for some of the teeth photographs for the Autobiography series and this might be the ideal presentation.
In the meantime, I'm enamored with the materials. I especially like how a brush can be left to dry in the wax and when it's heated up, all is well. No cleaning brushes! Yay!
Tomorrow I am practicing on my own and if it works, I'll build supports on Monday! It's also time to build some frames. These (now much smaller versions) are going to be exhibited soon so frame-making time it is.
