A New Encaustic Photo Transfer: This Time It’s a Rooster

I’ve been working on some new encaustic pieces during the past two weeks. Inspired by the image transfer demonstration I saw at the encaustic conference back in June, I’ve been trying my hand at a few of these “water transfers.”

The process requires patience, which isn’t really one of my strengths! It’s worth it though when the paper is rubbed away and the image has transferred nicely into the surface of the wax.

I started with a cropped version of one of the photos I took during the 2011 Fields Project. I added layers of wax, oil stick, and even used a paper doily to add texture.

Till the Cows Come Home

 

And me too!

I just returned home after spending nine glorious days participating in the 2011 Fields Project in Oregon, Illinois.

On the first morning I was there, a few cows from a neighboring farm came by to say hello. Elsie Richolson, my host, called the cows’ owner and then shooed them back toward their home.

At the Fields Project Art Show on June 26th I was interviewed by Chris Johnson, a reporter and photographer from the Ogle County News. Here’s the story: Unique Art Created During Fields Project.

And here’s a link a Flickr set where you’ll find more photos from my time in Illinois. These are some of the ones I took of Grant, Kaitlin, and a few of their critters.
