I'm still experimenting with encaustic art, there is something very compulsive in seeing how the wax reacts with pressure and heat - well, anyway - it pleases me!
So I made some more cards using different silhouette stamps this time.
Creating an undersea grotto is the easiest effect to achieve when starting out.
I used some new fish silhouette stamps, which I love. They are really deeply etched rubber stamps from Designs by Ryn, a fabulous stamp designer in Canada.
I then had a go at some landscapes, using trees as the stamped image. This was more tricky, and I did get quite frustrated - one eventually found its way into the bin - completely beyond help!
All these were created quite by accident, as I didn't really know what I was doing!
I like the sky in this one. And is an example of why I love this technique, its unpredictability!
This one is my favourite, it has an ethereal quality not captured by the camera.
Much more practice needed now, and I will try starting with a completely blank card, with no stamped images.
Just seen a rainbow so happy Autumn!
