Well I'm just having too much fun! Tried some shellac burns tonight. Oh how cool! You dab the shellac onto the board that has some encaustic medium alone or medium and paint, then set it on fire! The results are not real predictable and really fantastic. Here's a shot of the 9 boards I'm working on now....some with shellac burns and some without. And the other pic is of my griddle with my tins full of encaustic medium and paint.
