All New Wax on Wednesdays Video!

 All new "Wax on Wednesdays!" video this week. 
I began this small work with the intention of exploring mark making with inks, graphite, and oil sticks in the wax . 
I started with a 4x4 x2" cradle board.
I also wanted to experiment with adding some graphite powder to the encaustic gesso and see what would come of it. 
After the gesso mixture dried on the panel, the more I sanded it, the more I loved how the graphite darkened in some places , and showed the brush texture. I purposely used the stiffest ,scratchiest , oldest brush , ( that I had not yet ruined) that I could find anticipating that I would enjoy any texture it gave with the graphite gesso mix. 



The Supplies I Used This Week:
4x4x2" unprimed wood cradle board
R and F encasutic gesso
graphite powder
graphite crayon
clay tools
clay scraper
oil paint stick white
india inks : white, black, red
baby wipes
