Cooking today, but in my creative space, not in the kitchen…
- 1 kg pure bees wax
- 200 gr refined bees wax pellets
- 220 gr damar resin crystals
Mix together all ingredients and melt over low heat stirring constantly until combined (about 30 minutes).
Ladle mixture into patty cake tins and wait till cool and resolidified.
Pop out of tins and store until next painting day!
My favourite kind of cooking – mixing up encaustic medium. It feels so good to have a big fresh batch all ready to go. The possibilities of it are endless; I wonder what paintings this batch will become…
For those of you following my disaster in the studio yesterday, take 2 didn’t go well. But I will resurrect this piece, take 3 will be the winner – I just know it.
