Wax on Wednesdays Encaustic Coloring Pages !


We have been super busy creating in the "Encausticology Paper Journey " online workshop ! This first week concentrated on encaustic monotypes, and this week we will be creating a handmade journal for all of our wonderful prints. This is a little warm up exercise created from the clean up of all of those great monotype pulls. 
When using your heated palette to mix paint colors or create encaustic monotypes , it is such a shame to let lovely excess pigmented wax go to waste! I find that even as I am attempting to clean the surface with a paper towel beautiful mark making is created , and I must attempt to capture those images! 
 I often soak up the excess wax with regular copy paper from the printer. 
They have fascinating marks and patterns that I just can't let go to waste. 
But what to do with them ? 
I create encaustic coloring pages ! 

These coloring pages are a perfect warm up exercise for when I step into the studio in the morning to start getting some color play going, and it really makes those wax blots and patterns pop !
