I'm really loving this medium. The possibilities seem endless! I particularly love the way the colors blend as I fuse the wax. Such wonderful surprises.
I'm finding that I like the R&F brand of paints and medium more than the Enkaustikos...these are the only two I've tried so far. The R&F has a wonderful smooth consistency and seems to not harden quite as fast, which give me seconds more working time. Might not seem like much but it really does impact how the wax goes down. I've also found that they blend quite differently. I find the R&F more workable. We'll see if I still feel the same way after the workshop next weekend.
Here are my most recent paintings that I think are finished. The first two have shellac burns. They create some wonderful textures.
