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 the process is the absolute inability to control outcomes. I learn to let go and enjoy the process of co-creating what wants to come to fruition.

See the video below for a demo and detailed description of the process.

Art in the transcendental sense becomes the real practice of awareness.

Check out this talk I gave at Shumei, where I demonstrate the encaustic monotype process.
