I'm beginning to get really into encaustics and have now got my supplies at the ready. I made something small to get me started and to experiment - it's really a simple no-fuss mini wallhanging - oh I can see myself totally immersed in hot beeswax - well not literally, it's very addictive.
I think that the part I love is the weighing out and concoctions of waxes and colourings, I suppose you'd call it alchemy!! There's a touch of the witch in me and I'm sure in a former life I was cooking up potions and spells!!
