Loving these stencil demos in my new book 'Encaustics Mixed Media' by Patricia Balwin Seggebruch...stencils made by Stencil Girl Products...... can't wait to try em out for the New Year, along with my new toys, an encaustic batik writing scribe tool, and anodized aluminum print plate!(Thank you santas everywhere!) So what does the New Year bring? In the Year of the Snake I shall be attempting a long awaiting return to the scholarly world, new sculpted art dolls, and local mural projects; all pretty new endeavors. Over Christmas break I fiddled around with garbage and PaperClay and made this White Rabbit from Lewis Carrol's original illustrated version of Alice in Wonderland, for my good and talented Wonderland collector and cohort Jen T.
Looking forward to my first ever official ATC postcard swap organized by the folks at The Art Colony; will post my theme of the month cards here: steampunk, & etagami (art of messy) before I send off...also looking forward to trying demos of using torch on shellac and wood glue for cool effects to mix with encaustic paintings...will post my findings here. January already feels more bearable!
