Blowing a wax swirl with Hot Air Gun

Work safely!!

Iron mini-hotplate doodles

Turn the encaustic painting iron upside down and you make a mini-hotplate. This set of encaustic card doodles is a spontaneous series of enjoyable creative experiences. Sometimes the process is as fine as the product. In fact sometimes the process is far more valuable than the product. Enjoyment, relaxation, fun, all these are at hand when the 'play' of artistic curiosity is lived and activity with the molten wax medium of the encaustic arts is an ideal way to engage with these aspects of yourself.

Fantasy Castle Cards 1
Straight Iron Edge Work

Fantasy Castle Cards is a short hobby art series exploring simple and small images in encaustic art wax block colours, created using the painting iron as the main tool. Quick to do , stimulating to the imagination and as always, easy to change and rework during the creative process. Of course, this is just a glimpse of what might be developed with practise and imagination - enjoy these first magical steps with Michael Bossom.

Fantasy Castle Cards 2
Stylus Castles

Second in the short Fantasy Castle Card series, this features 2 images being created for fun hobby art cards. Learn about turning a chaotic abstract background into a fantasy scene. Next watch the opportunities for images flow through before a decision is made to stop and develop the waxen work into that final story.

Fantasy Castle Cards 3
The SCRY Set

Third in the Fantasy Castle Cards series of 4 videos, this one is focused on scrying. You may wonder what scrying means - well it is the activity of seeing, one might almost say divining through the act of gazing into something - in this case the wax colours. The scry backgrounds offer a basis for the imagination to develop imagery that enlivens the whole into a cohesive image. Great for fantasy scenes!

Fantasy Castle Cards 4
Angels & Castles

The fourth and final short video in the Fantasy Castle Cards series, The Angels & Castles A5 card image develops from a fairly random beginning. After abstraction it is once again the 'scrying' approach that evolves the environment which expands into the visionary artwork. Is luck something real? Uploaded as a 2013 Christmas wish card
.... hope you enjoy it.
Peace to all.

Doyley printing
filigree prints in encaustic wax

Filigree paper doyleys are usually used to decorate cakes being served. But their lovely patterns can be utilised in a simple encaustic wax printing process to give quick & intricate results. Great for card making, but good for artistic work too. Watch approaches involved in the making of 11 pieces for a display board.

Stylus Wire Brush
"Landescapes"

Take a look at using the Stylus wire brush head in this little video which shows the creation of an image, loosely resting in landscape, but more simplified and abstracted. It was done as a relaxation, but also to notice how the brush head of the Stylus can be used . So, hopefully you will get some insight into the fine metal wired Stylus Brush Head. 'Landescapes' seemed like a suitable title as it all unfolded. Hope you enjoy it & thanks for watching.

Foxglove Landscape A2

Foxgloves flourish, blooming in June & July, their beautiful red violet magenta pink florets climbing up those tall elegant stems. This easy to watch 20 minute video witnesses an A2 sized foxglove landscape in encaustic wax coming to life (594mm x 420mm). Painted onto card base using the encaustic art wax blocks (non-resinous wax), Michael Bossom guides the colours with heated tools, to find a final image of remembered experiences.

Woman Laced in Wax
Woman laced in wax is an encaustic artwork (size A3 420mm x 297mm) created using a paper filigree doilie (doyley) as a print transfer vehicle for the wax colours. Further details were created directly with the painting iron. The piece took on the suggestion of female form as the work progressed and thus the title and eventual image came into being.

The Grass Fence 1
introduction - episode 1
is an inspirational film relating to encaustic art and drawing from a visit to a grass field in winter. The intention was to film the ripple effects of wind on the dead winter grasses, then use this for painting ideas. The gales had been blowing for more than a week and during filming it was a nearby fence that caught my attention. This is the first 7 minutes of the film which comes from that visit. There is more ....

The Grass Fence 2
episode 2 - a bit of Fibonacci
(following the introduction) .
This is a series of developing pieces of encaustic wax art using heat as the solvent. The Grass Fence was filmed one day in winter, after a week of gales, by Michael Bossom. This inspirational subject led to artistic reaction and in this episode somehow sparked a link with the Fibonacci code, the Golden Mean ( aka the Golden Section ).

The Grass Fence 3
episode 3 hotplate approaches

Search for "The Grass Fence" to find all related episodes. There will be more.

The Grass Fence 4
episode 4 hot air & canvas

The Grass Fence 5
Encaustic Resin Wax & Wax Solvent Paste (torch fused)

Grass Fence 5 looks at some different types of encaustic wax approaches. Resin Wax is an encaustic medium of beeswax and damar resin melted together. Beeswax and citrus solvent paste is a cold application medium applied in layers and after a few hours of drying it is fixed by torch flame fusing. Be aware of good ventilation and fire safety!

The Bramble Leaf in Wax
printing thin surfaces into wax

This is a very short glimpse into the world of printing thin surfaced objects into encaustic waxes using the iron.

The Bramble Leaf in Wax is just one of myriad possibilites. Fresh green leaves will wilt - so find strong or drying leaves that will not rip or wilt and become unusable.

Encaustic Medley 2011

A collection of encaustic images used to illustrate a portion of a song from Long long ago.

Encaustic Jingle 2011

A set of encaustic images combined with music made by a similar approach - allowing the creative forces to unfold in the actual moments of working rather than preconceiving what should happen before starting.

Happy New Year
