My wishes of wax were answered.
Due to a twist of events that included forgetting my studio keys, I got to have a studio visit and encaustic tutorial with dk haas.
dk's studio is great and her wax set up is dialed in. She's been working in wax for a decade. I got to play with pigment, a heat gun, paraffin and beeswax, falling completely back in love with the swirling liquid wax.
I think there's lot of potential for universe-in-drag work with this technique. All I need is a little glitter.
Or maybe a lot.
