I think I would use these as backgrounds for atcs or torn up in a collage. The image to the right above was on a piece of foam core that was folded to get the lines before adding the wax.
I took a class Saturday that involved wax on paper. I had always wanted to work with wax. The instructor worked exclusively on paper and made cards. I tried to branch out and incorporate paper into them. I think collage encaustic art uses wood and a thicker layer of wax. Here are some I made. We used a craft iron that we rubbed squares of wax onto in different colors. Then we combined them in patterns.
I didnt like how thin the layer of wax went on. To translucent for me. Has anyone tried this? What did you use them in? I would love to see your work.
