You don't need to be an artist or have any special skills to create encaustic art. It's fun, fascinating, and the techniques taught in Michael Bossom's The Encaustic Art Project Book make it easy to do. You'll be creating vibrant wax paintings in no time at all.
Using more than 155 step-by-step photographs and many inspirational examples, Michael Bossom shows how to paint a whole range of stunning pictures that include vibrant flowers, incredible fantasy scenes, tranquil landscapes, and luminous abstract designs.
Many ways to use the pastel, bold, bright, and metallic colors are demonstrated, as the free-flowing wax melts magically into patterns, borders, and intricate designs — or skies, trees, lakes, and mountains. Each painting is unique and original and a whole range of cards and gifts can be made quickly and simply.
Bossom shows how different surfaces can be used, including wood, rigid board, absorbent card, sealed card, foil, smooth paper, textured paper, and tissue paper. Images can also be transferred onto fabric, which can then be overpainted, or embroidered and embellished with beads and collage.
