  • Encaustic art bookmarks

    I've been playing about with encaustic art the last couple of days (great fun!) and made these bookmarks.

    What do you think?? Not the best photo, but you'll get the general idea

                Love the colours, I saw someone doing encaustic art at a fair I went to look at, it looked fun. She stamped black fantasy figures on afterwards, they looked really impressive.

                  Oh wow!
                  I once had a go at it but it was a long long time ago, I didn't know that many people still did it

                    Lovely! I saw it for the first time on telly, then soon after at the craft fair down in Dorset and then, more recently, a friend of my son's made me a card not telling me that this is what she likes to do, I was chuffed to bits with it. It's a lovely craft and the results do seem to come along pretty quickly and also leave me thinking, how on earth do they get it to look like that with a few strokes of an iron, really clever Ooh another thing I've just thought about, at the craft and coffee morning the other week someone was doing quilting and she showed me a tiny triangle of a thing which is really a collar iron? and I wondered about getting one for my son's friend to do delicate bits instead of the bigger irons...would it work do you think?

                      Encaustic Stylus

                      Nettie, by "collar iron" I think you must have seen the Clover iron - this is a little heated triangle and if people already haved one, try it with wax; it should work fine.
                      However, a similar tool is actually made for wax (It's called an encaustic stylus) and comes with a split tip (drawing nib) and a wire brush head.
                      Many other attachments (including triangles, squares, rectangles, rounds and other "petally" shapes) are available too which are all flat and turn the stylus into a small iron of that shape.

                      If you Google "Wakes Waxes" then click the link left of the "Wakes Waxes" heading, that will take you to a list of order forms. Select the "tools" list and that gives a list of prices and links to pictures of the various tips.
                      (Sorry for long windedness - I haven't made enough posts on here to be allowed to give a direct link)

                        Beautiful!!! Love the colours - perhaps something for me to try??? No idea where to start so of course would need to buy ALL the accessories and I don't even know what you need!
                        I can hear OH groaning 'NOT another craft!'

                        Seriously though I would def buy those if I saw them at a fair!
