…….having pigments mixed with wax applied to a surface by heat”
A few weeks ago, well more than a few……I caught up with a gorgeous girl that I haven’t seen in many years, we catch up on Facebook tho. She has her own business here. Kath, I feel that you would love Julia.
Julia has started offering classes in Encaustic art, I was curious as to what this was, knew it involved bee’s wax and that was about it. She lives in a suburb called Williamstown and is only a street away from the beach just over an hour from me. I didn’t think to take my camera, as usual, so if you click on the link you will see some lovely photo’s.
It was a beautiful day, sunny and warm, just had to call into the yarn shop down there first tho’ can’t help myself, and bought two balls of noro yarn.
Then raced around to Julia’s to start making art!!!!!
She wanted us to start with Red, after a little meditation we were off.This was my first one, if you stare at it long enough you start to see things, can you see the little animal face in the left hand corner, reminded me of a little beaver, or hedgehog……is that a sign that I will visit the UK soon I wonder.
They are not very big in size, around 5inches by 3inches.
You use a tiny iron that doesn’t have steam holes, rub colored bee’s wax on the sole plate and then just swipe it over the special Encaustic paper, you can add more color it you want and keep building it up, but I was happy with what I did.
Julia sent me a lovely card made from one of her pieces, and she is slowly building a Tarot set using this medium.
A lovely morning reconnecting and learning something new. It is Mother’s Day tomorrow and I decided I will take mum down to do the next class in about a months time, it will be a belated Mother’s Day Pressie, she doesn’t know I will just bundle her into the car. I have bought her a few little pieces to open tomorrow so she doesn’t get suspicious 🙂
Julia also makes the most amazing essences, I bought a room spray and an aura spray, they smell soooooo good.
I have a very shy little girl here
I won this gorgeous girl over at Fi’s blog, I love her not sure what to call her as yet, I am just calling her bunny (original I know) for the moment…..any suggestions?????
My granddaughter saw her last week and came running out with her in her arms all excited saying ‘Look what nanna’s got’ bless her.
Thank you Fi, she is a beautiful and welcome edition into my life.
Well my lovelies, I hope you are all happy and well and that the rain has stopped and the sun is shining.
