Wax on Wednesdays Encaustic and Wood Glue Burn

A wood glue burn is a wonderful way to achieve rich caramel , and rust colors .
Adjustments can be made to how deep the shades become by the stroke of the torch. 


 Here are the supplies used this week:
4x4 x 7/8" wood panel
R and F encaustic medium
wood glue (  hardware store )
India Ink
graphite crayon
graphite powder (and water)
oil sticks (white , buff, black)
heat gun
torch (with adjustable flame)


 Safety precautions should always be taken for working with an open flame.
 Outside is best for this process. 
I am using a butane torch with an adjustable flame set on very low to control the burn.
