Gear it Up!

On this "gear it up" I should try something new. WAX, as I have only tried a few times. Acrylic color in two layers with water droplets, which I have seen in Andy Skinner's tutorial on You tube.
The cardboard was painted with gesso, then with acrylic colors, and when it was dry, I put wax on.

I think it was a bit difficult, but I am very happy with the result

  1. I think the wax adds another wonderful dimension to your fabulous piece of art, Susan!

    And I love your choice of colour (I always do)! You always manage to create that wonderfully worn looking impression I truly admire! Wow!

    Have a lovely Sunday!

    1. Thank Amelie, I often look at your blog and find many inspiring techniques and I learned from the best in the field.

  2. Love this Steampunk piece and the colors are truly inspiring. I am curious as to what kind of wax you used and how. Was it beeswax in a melting pot or just straight wax? Awesome job! Hugz! ~Niki

    1. Thank you for your interest Niki, it is the clear beeswax and applied by brush. And it's got heat with the heat gun, where it has too thick a layer, I hope that it explains a bit.

  3. Very cool how you can take these bright colors and make them look vintage. Love your focus on steampunk team! :) yay! I have not tried encaustic yet, but this is inspiring me to try it out. Have a grand day!
