This is the place where we will keep all those fantastic videos
This artists process seems overly complicated, not sure why she feels the need to make it so difficult
that was painful to watch
yeah i thought so too but thought it interesting to see how some people need to make the process seem overly difficult and maybe a little bit elitist.
maybe she is just unable to get hold of a pancake griddle so she can be sure the temp is not too high. But OUCH I can see so much potential for nasty burns with this process!!
The first time I saw this I wanted to pull my hair out- I was yelling at the screen to hurry up! UHG! And the results didn't look very good either. I guess she doesn't like to wait for the damar to melt??!! I couldn't watch it again- it was too painful the first time a few months ago. But you are right, Mo, it is interesting to see how others work. Besides, wouldn't you have a chance of mixing water with your wax this way?
Watching this has made me feel quite hysterical.
Here's part one of a very simple video about making medium. This guy is a wood worker- didn't know he was into encaustics. He has a cool way of melting and filtering his impurities.
had a look at his work, very nice. some nice still life and small landscapes. Hes a good painter.
I guess he and his wife also have a gallery they run. I will keep my eyes out for another video by him.
enjoyed hearing her talk about her process: artist Tremain Smith
oh yes this is one of my fave videos too , love her work. I sort of took this direction for my nepal series but with layerings of paper after I saw her work. Love it.
When I saw the Tremain clip for the first time I wanted to shop at the Thrift store to see what kind of old material I could find. That was some time ago and I still haven't done it.
