Encoustic art

Me and my mother took a day off to just ahve fun together and we wanted to create some encoustic art.
We use somekind of beeswax and melt the wax with a special iron, and when melted you can use that iron as a ‘paintbrush’.

 

 

We use thicker and smoother paper than you would normally use for art. We also bought a lot of different colours to experiment with! What a fun day this was.
