Encaustic Mono-Prints

Encaustic painting is an art form that I came to years after finishing art school. It’s something that has always intrigued me so finally I decided I would learn how. Fast forward 10 years and I have been experimenting with mono-printing with wax and dry pigment. It’s been such a blast! I love the whole process, to figuring out what type of colors to use, which dry pigment goes with the paint and then crossing my fingers the whole things turns out. I would say probably 65% of the prints turn out the way I had envisioned and another 10% turned out even though it wasn’t what I expected and about 25% end up in the trash. It’s such a fun, exciting and quick process, what’s not to like?

I like monochromatic images as well as bright colors. The metallic aspect is really cool too!

These are just a few examples of the work I have been doing lately. Silver, Gold & Copper. There is a large full image of the prints as well as a close-up detailed version.
