Hummingbird Studios: Mixed Media Fine Art mixed with the Fine Art of Life…

Archive for the ‘Encaustic’ Category

Using the same technique with different mediums….what in the world will happen?

I’ve fallen so in love with Encaustic lately but I still love my acrylic technique so much, so I’m just going for it and playing around….remember to always just play and have fun!! so here I am playing around with using the exact same taping and collaging techniques except using encaustic instead of acrylic.  If you look at a lot of my shape based pieces you’ll see I”ll focus on either triangles, squares or rectangles….well with this encaustic piece I not only set aside the acrylic but used both squares and triangles….How DARE I????   🙂  But it was so so fun….so here is the result, let me know what you think and  leave a comment or “Like” it or just look at it and say “what the heck was she thinking”…..but just have a look ….. that’s all we should care about is putting what the muses give us on the substrate given us, whether it’s canvas, wood or notebook paper, then let others do what they will with it….(but I do love my comments I must say!!! 🙂  Peace and Light to you my friend.  WK

When transfers goes wrong but oh, so right!

Well, I Had great ideas for a transfer on top of this piece and it didn’t quite work out, however, the end result did!  Remember JUST PLAY and see what happens and I did with only a little fear (I wish I could say I was fearless trying to put on the transfer) but the texture was just not smooth enough so the transfer didn’t take, but to my surprise I fell in love with the final result.  The majority of this encaustic is with hand made encaustic using the tip I gave in the earlier post……and the substrate is wood remnants from home depot just happening to equal 24″x18″  yeah!!  So this piece of encaustic was not only fun but cheap….however I must admit I do want to go buy some encaustic board to work on a smoother surface to experiment some more with transfers….  But here’s the final product and will go up for sale on Windykai.com and Prints at Red Bubble

Another piece that was just PLAYING AROUND ( do you sense a theme growing here???)
