We have been learning to do different background techniques and today we learned about a Faux Encaustic technique which was simple and we all had a great time making samples.
Because we didn't have one of those fancy small irons that people use for this technique we used our own normal irons but we covered the plate in several layers of alfoil and we rubbed wax crayons onto the heated foil and then pressed onto cardstock to get a rather nice background.
Each colour was added on separately.
Here are the three samples that I made.
I can see great possibilities with this technique.
