Or just watch the Christmas Cards - Stags in the snow video if you want wish :)

Here a 3 alternative ideas. The bushes and trees are made with the reindeer antlers and the reindeer itself was masked off - a card put in the way, so the body of the reindeer printed onto that card and the antlers onto the painting card as wished wanted.

Our Christmas cards above were created using two polymer clear stamps from the new stamp range introduced this year. There are all sorts of combinations that can be used creatively in your designs with molten wax, or just as stamps if you prefer. Take a look at the clear stamp range to see what possibilities they offer.
The new book and DVD published this year introduces Encaustic Art BASICS as a set of complementary learning aids. The twin DVD disks have all the live action, almost 4 hours of it! Then the 80 page A4 format book has all of those and more in very illustrated step by step project pages. Get the BASICS.

You can click this link to watch a short video of this new addition to the Encaustic Art range, or go to the page where all the currently available Encaustic Art short videos for product and learning are available and easy to watch.
The Product Video page hosts short films which introduce and explain the various products in the Encaustic Art range.

There are also a growing collection of Learning videos intermixed with these. Lots of helpful insight when you are working toward building skills or looking into the possibilities of what various qualities the products can offer to your creations.

Over the last weeks I've been enjoying creating images in the encaustic art wax colours. Even after 32 years of playing and working with this fascinating medium I still find pleasure and happiness as well as challenge and evolution.

Craft is the skill involved in working with materials. The art comes as each of us discovers and expresses individuality within those skills.

One of the things that continues to stretch me in the genre of encaustic work is the way in which this alchemic material, the molten wax, often reveals things that were unexpected. These offer the opportunity of reaction and development of images which can then take on an other-worldly impression.

I hope you enjoy them too.
