Beeswax Encaustic- 4 for 4 - ATC Swap
Technique: Encaustic Beeswax
Host: Cathy Calamas
There is a wonderful artist who lives in western NC who uses the wax encaustic technique in a lot of her paintings. Whenever I am in Asheville, NC ( a wonderful arts community) I go see her displays at the Woolworth Art Walk. I would love to one day own one of her originals but for now I will have to be happy with a print.( I have a print of the nest of eggs that is on her home page.)
It is a technique I have always wanted to try and I am always checking to see what is new on Youtube about it. Wax encaustic gives your art a wonderful, touchable, aged and soft dimension.
So I have decided to host a 4 for 4 ATC sized swap using this technique. The theme is "butterflies" which is a good Spring theme after this hard, long Winter. ( yes , even in SC, its been long).
