eBooks from my Studio - it's like being in one of my workshops!
New from my Studio - September 1, 2018
WAX & WORDS:
An exploration of asemic writing, words, mark making and images enhanced with beeswax encaustic layers and gold foil
We will explore mark-making with all kinds of tools, including sticks, stamps, and sprayed walnut ink over stencils. All of the simple materials are "wax-friendly" and chosen especially for their absorbancy and acceptance of wax. Areas of the artwork will be veiled,, concealed and revealed, then covered with thin layers of beeswax to add translucency to the mystery of the marks. The resulting work, elegant and timeless, can be matted, framed, or presented in wonderful two- and three-dimensional ways.
With nine hands-on videos and 80 pages of instruction and photographs, this is an eBook you will go to often for mixed-media and collage inspiration! Interactive PDF, $18
