Frozen - Encautic Waxart by Villa-Chinchilla Frozen - Encautic Waxart by Villa-Chinchilla
:omfg: BIG VIEW to see the details

It's funny, normally I avoid touching an iron to do my laudry *grrrrrr*
But once I've started ironing wax-pictures with it it's hard for me to stop :)

This pic has suddenly showed up when I wasen't expecting it.

Aktually even though I do not like the colors I could not just lay it aside... there's something to it... It looks awfully cold and frosty just like it was here in Germany this Winter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Traditional Encaustic Wax-Art
------------------------------------
Technique = Enaustic Waxart
Tools = Lithe Iron for applying the wax
Tools = Knife + knitting needles as scarping tools
Colors = wax Hobbyline + Stockmar colored beewax blocks
Paper = special glossy printerpaper card
Original Size = A6 (postcard size)
Time to draw it = about 2 hours

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Sky and ice I've made as usual by applying hot molten liquid wax with an iron to the surface of a white postcard.

By applying und distributing drops ofblue wax with the tip of the iron I created the bird later on.

After hardening of all the wax I set to work on the finer details of the bird. By using a small pointed kitchen knive and + knitting needles I scratched and lifted away parts of the hardened black to reveal the white plain paper surfice beneath . This way I worked out the finer details of the wings the outlines of the bird.

Was a lot of fun !

My first animated Winter-Wax Picture =D

Do you use a normal iron to draw this?

I'm using non-steam irons of two sizes.
One is of normal size the other is smaller
and lighter like a traveling iron.

The details on the bird are cool. The picture really makes me feel cold, ice and snow are well expressed here. So is the sky, it looks kind of like aurora:)
