encaustic updates December 2020

Welcome to this last 2020 update.
Not an easy year for anyone, but soon there is the solstice and then the return of light. Meanwhile, candles bring us a warm feeling in the depth of the winter darkness. And they are so easy to create. See more below or here.

It's another chance for us to show some of the encaustic art on TV again. It's an early start though! The plan so far is to look at snowmen, candles and landscape as well as some stamping for Christmas. But on the day itself, things may change as the show unfolds!

If you want the opportunity to show your own encaustic art on the shows all you have to do is send it by email to studio@hochanda.com but it is best to do it on the day, whilst the shows are live or just before. Why not share your art with others. It can be a big help and encouragement for those feeling shy to begin. Why not share one or two of your own results for us all to see?
