Ghost Hour  Encaustic Waxart by Villa-Chinchilla Ghost Hour  Encaustic Waxart by Villa-Chinchilla
When the dark moon casts it's light on the hangmans tree
at midnight you better nit be arround. Because at that
ghostly hour desparate and evil spirits are prone to rise
and haunt you :iconghostsplz:

Yes it's a tree again; an older on of my waxart pictures
actually. The original I gave to :iconyashakawaii: as a
prize that she has won in one of my contests :glomp:

She's a great artist ! I recommand you look at her gallery !

Wieder einmal sehr schön geworden. Wie bekommst du denn die Bäume hin? Ich finde das ziemlich schwer mit dem Eisen und bei mir klappt das irgendwie nicht :-(

Bäume in der encaustic technik hin zu bekommen finde ich auch jedesmal wieder sehr schwer mit dem Eisen. Ganz oft bügle ich damit etwas vorher schönes zu matsch wenn ich nicht aufpasse.

Die Temperatur des Eisens halte ich zum Bügeln des Baumes ein klein wenig höher als sonst, damit das wachs schön sanft fließt. Ein Tropfen braunes oder braun-rotes Wachs kommt ganz auf die Spitze des Eisens. Das Papier halte ich in der Hand. Auf das Eisen wird kein Druck ausgeübt, sondern nur das flüssige Wachs ganz zart wie ein Hauch gestreichelt und als Flüssigkeit zwischen Karte und Eisen bewegt (ich halte dabei die Karte oft so vor mein Gesicht dass ich den leichten millimeter dünnen Film von flüssigem Wachs gut sehen kann). Jeder Ast und Stamm werden nur mit der kleinen Spitze des Eisens oder der obersten aller äußeren Kante gezogen, vom unteren Ansatz bis ganz zum Ende möglichst in einem Zug.

Ach ja und ich drehe/kippe/biege die Karte auf der Hand manchmal zusätzlich je nach Winkel des Astes und der Lage des Stamms entweder bevor ich das Eisen zum Bügeln ansetze oder auch während ich bügle.

Außerdem halte ich beim Bügel von Details von Zeit Zeit den Griff des Eisen andersherum ^^;
Hmmmm kann's irgedwie schlecht erklären...
Müßte ich Dir zeigen oder ein Foto davon machen.

Wenn Stamm und Äste fertig sind, dann nehme ich zur Herstellung für das Laub des Baumes kurz in heißes Wachs eingetauchte Papiertücher mit denen ich das noch füssige Wachs auf die Karte tupfe. Grün + hellgelbe oder rot und rotbraune Farbe für Blätter und rosarote und weiße farbe für Blüten (dunkle farbtöne zuerst, helle zuletzt). Vom Papiertuch reiße ich vorher einen Streifen ab (ungleiche fransige Risskante erwünscht). Knülle/Drehe das eine Ende (gerade Kante) des Papierfetzens leicht zusammen, so dass es gut zu halten ist und tunke das ausgefranste Ende leicht ins flüssge Wachs und dann gleich auf die Karte an der Stelle wo das Laub hin soll. Das ganze wiederholen und oft einen neuen "Papierpinsel" herstellen, damit die Strucktur der Wachsblätter fein bleibt.

Viel Glück :hug:

the pink moon against the blue scene makes it very eerie and really creates that idea of haunted area

Noch gefällt, ich liebe das Bild, ohne das Bild würde ich NICHT UMZIEHNEN.

Ich freu mich aber auch das du die beiden Bilder noch hast.
^-^ Leider habe von dem Veggi keinen Scann mehr. Mir sind meine PC schon so oft kaputt gegangen, das ich über die Hälte aller Bilder verlohren habe. Fotos sowieso. ;_;

Ich hab Dein Veggi Bild bei mir im Büro eingescannt
damit ich's mir bei Bedarf kurz mal auf'm PC ansehen kann
(verrückt ich weiß;). Ist zwar nur eine Downgesizde Version aber immerhin !
Also kann ich Dir den Scann jederzeit mailen oder ich kann
Ihn bei DA mit Verweis darauf dass es ein Geschenk von Dir
ist hochladen, oder bei Photobucket hochladen und in meinem
DA-Journal einen Link setzen, dann kannst Du Dir wenigstens
den Scann von Deinem Veggie Bild downloaden =D
Ganz wie Du es magst !

You know pablo dominguez? He was a not so well known Surrealist, he invented the dekalkomanie(dont know the english word): you drop paint on the canvas wait some time and then use some paper, press it on the canvas and you get this kind of alien landscape....Just wanted to let you know

I love this technique and you are truly a master in this, so I will send you some more stars and blessings
