Encaustic.com update : June 2020

Hello and welcome to another small update from us at encaustic.com

In June were are offering a 20% discount on everything in our shop. See below!

During the lock-down we have remained open to be able to continue making our encaustic art supplies readily available. Of course, the weather in the UK has been a saving factor - sunshine and dry days for pretty much the whole time. So those shopping queues have not often been a soggy affair. And there has been time to enjoy our pastimes, our hobbies and art. We are all told that online shopping has jumped forward five years in the last 2 months! So stay well and let your art reflect, allow yourself expression, find creativity and refreshment in the midst of this global difficulty.

A blog video below & don't forget the Facebook group Encaustic House Community Join and be inspired by the encaustic art of others around the globe - just ask.

Greeting Card opportunity - save 20% (£10) through June.

Many of you, many of those in the UK who enjoy encaustic art, make cards; greetings card. For many years we have manufactured A5 and A6 aperture card blanks. These strong cards have been used by lots of people across the years. But unfortunately the larger size is now out of stock and the manufacturer has gone bust, so we can't get more. We do still have a good stock of the A6 packs and are offering a brilliant 20% discount this month (on everything actually). So if you want to use your time to make a good batch of encaustic art cards (or any other artwork content actually), then take a look at the 100 x flat pack of cards & envelopes. We also have the clear outer bags for these greetings cards in case selling them is something you do. Numerous churches and other charities (social centres, guide, etc) find cards are a great fundraiser. Just enter the coupon code: june2020 either in the view cart screen, or use the option to be found at the top of the checkout page. Just enter june2020 and apply that coupon.

What is the Open Window?

Every month or so we create a new inspirational gallery on encaustichouse.com to stimulate and offer visual ideas. There are small video bits and some nice words too. This month it was my turn and I chose a dragonfly experience I had to be the main focus. If you want a bit of encouragement then take a look at this dragonfly gallery. And if the video is not playing just click and give it a moment to load ...
Video for projects with Compact Hotplate, Stylus Pro & over-painted Stamps
When the virus lock-down happened we needed to send some films up to the TV rather than go there. Here are 3 of them - just the demonstration action - all intended to help people understand how to use the tools in projects. Maybe there are one or two tips that can help you? They are on YouTube, so you can jump along the timeline quickly rather than watch everything (if you like).
