encaustic wax monotypes
I create encaustic wax monotypes by "drawing"on a heated metal plate with special beeswax crayons, then laying a sheet of paper on top, which captures the melted wax design.
What I love about working with encaustic wax monotypes is the absolute inability to control outcomes. Melting beeswax crayons on a heated metal plate, I show up as co-creator and do my part, but ultimately Mother Nature herself dictates the outcome. I can embellish and revise, but my input is limited. I learn to let go and enjoy the process of co-creating what wants to come to fruition.
Ultimately it is up to us to learn to live with and love the consequences of our actions.
See the video below for a demo and detailed description of the process.
