I am always fascinated by new rubber stamping techniques and one of the most recent ones that I've learned is called encaustic collage. Joggles offered it as a course a few months ago and I took it after seeing the teacher's work in a magazine. I am now hooked. The technique involves stamping on tissue paper then using clear wax, applied with an encaustic iron, to layer the stamped images and sayings. Once the background is covered, coloured wax is applied. The look can be soft or bold depending on the colours used. The theme for this week's TGIF is "Techniques" and this is a piece of my artwork using encaustic collage.
