Sharing an underwater scene using Encaustic Painting.
- Inked up image and stamped onto card stock. I actually stamped this one at the May Stampscapes retreat. :o) I only used a portion of the complete image. I liked this Coronado Island image so much that I ordered it. After I mounted it on EZMount, I cut it in pieces so I can easily use a portion or the complete image.
- Use iron and waxes to create water background. See here for post on tips and Encaustic video.
- Holding card stock in mid air, lightly touch and pull away the iron to create the ocean bottom.
- Using the tip of the iron pull the wax up for underwater foliage.
- Adhere layers.
