encaustic wax painting

On Sunday afternoon, Australin artist Julie Andrews was kind enough to teach Emma Hollins and I how to paint with wax. The wax is painted onto boards of wood in layers, then worked using a blow torch to create various textures and effects.
Below are some of the results. To see more photos from the day, see Emma’s blog.
