CAVA Ass 2 – Encaustic 4

Again, knowing wax is non-porous, I wanted to see if I could apply ink over and under wax layers. My first layer was oil crayon and a page torn out of an old book then covered in wax. I made marks in the wax to the base level to pour ink into. Excess ink was wiped away and an extra layer of wax placed on top of the ink layer. Although I consider this experiment somewhat positive, I probably rushed the process and may have had a better result if I’d waited for the ink to completely dry. There was some bleeding with the top layer of wax due to the ink still having wet spots. Overall, I am happy with the result.
