Encaustic on the go: a painting in the first stages.

This little painting is in the first stages (it's actually a horizontal but the Blogger app for iPhone won't let me rotate it!). I don't have a griddle of any kind to warm up the wax, so I am only using the heat gun or small quilting iron to heat the wax sticks, and then I vigorously rub them onto the surface. A completely different technique for me! I also have put down a strip of loose-weave muslin, and have done an oil pastel rub along the left hand side... So much fun. Stay tuned! (For information about what equipment and supplies I used, go the the previous post).
