Using the faux encaustic techniques demoed in the latest Acrylic Artist magazine, I created something.
I wasn't too crazy about it.
So...went out to Michael's and picked up what acrylic mediums they had - found this nice little set that had everything I wanted (and then some).
The piece ended like this before I got more supplies.
I sanded down the top part (which was fiber paste, not what the demo called for).
Then I gave serious thought to the colors. They just didn't work for me - and didn't even work together. So I made some changes to that, both in the top and bottom portions.
I like it enough now to give it a title:
Landscape/Seascape No. 1: Lake Thingvallavatn in Autumn
