Two hours of encaustic art on Hochanda, covering some Christmas ideas as well as beginner landscapes, a look at stamps, snow and compact hotplate beginnings too.
Merry Christmas to you …
In this program Michael begins with quick candle creation. Then onto basic iron abstracts adn landscape format. Next comes a snowman!
Shona carefully explains landscape, then onto stamping a nativity scene and developing it with the iron. After this she shows how to use the comp0act hotplate for developing stamp images into scenes. A bit more hotplate swipes and dragthroughs, smoe brushed snow too.
Hochanda December 11th 7am with Paula, Shona & Michael
Shona begins this show’s demonstrations with clear stamps of stags in winter time. Add some snow to finish the scene perfectly. Next some more landscape swipes and drag-throughs on the compact hotplate and how t5o seal using the wax sealer (acrylic protection for cards),
Michael works those earlier candle approaches up with a new “candle-play” card. This was based on the idea from Ineke in the Netherlands who developed candles into destination places for her pathway characters ; candle-ways were born! Just a little time left to show the basics of how to use tools on the comp0act hotplate and that’s another hour gone!
