More Faux Encaustic

A few posts back I showed you the Faux Encaustic samples that I did at our Paper Arts Group.
Whenever we learn new techniques we then use it to make ATC's to swap at the next meeting.
Here are some that I did over the weekend but this time I was able to get more design-pattern-movement- call it what you want but I was able to create better scene type things.
Instead of putting the crayon on the "foil covered iron" and then plonking the iron onto the cardstock like I was shown in the demo-------
I put the crayon onto the "foil covered iron" and then turned the iron up so that the bottom plate was facing upwards and then I moved the card over the iron which allowed me to see where the colour was going.
I love the top middle one because I can see a house in the distance (no I haven't been drinking)-- and in the middle one on the bottom row in the pink section at the back I can see Leonardo da Vinci
Can you see anything hidden in them.
(If you click on the picture it will enlarge it so you can see a bigger view.)



I have made 14 of them and they will be swapped on Tuesday at our next meeting.

You have some great landscape variations there. Top right corner I see the back end of a cat and a bear's head!!!

I bet you are thrilled with these Doreen - the colours are lovely. I think the top left one has a look of Vincent Van Gogh's paintings.

You've really got me going here - I can see all sorts of things! Top left is a warm beach scene - top right I can see an antelope in a fantasy forest - bottom left is where the fairies live and bottom right has a face in the sky overlooking a gorgeous cornfield ..... Gorgeous colours Doreen - must try this.

They are wonderful. I think you have mastered a new technique.

I see the house and Leonardo, and I see a beautiful landscape in the bottom right picture and the top left one. The top right looks like an underwater scene with sea sponges and grasses. The bottom left looks like a field of rose colored flowers just before a storm. I haven't been drinking either!!

These are lovely. definitely landscapes - theyd be great on fabric or felt to embroider on. do you have an old iron youkeep specially for this sort of stuff, or are you brave and cover your good iron with foil?.

In the bottom right one I see (starting at the bottom) the desert, then graduation into grassland, then the sea, and then the sky. Beautiful! It sounds like a fun technique.

They look great Doreen, clever you to work out a better way of doing it.

I can see all sorts of things but I have to admit I had a glass of wine with dinner!
