Encaustic Painting

When I saw the latest For Your Inspiration challenge (FYI20) I immediately knew what I wanted to do – encaustic painting.

This technique is actually quite easy – you just need glossy paper, crayons, and an iron. Melt the crayon right onto the iron and smear onto the paper.

Of course once I was done I wasn’t sure how to make it a card, lol. I knew I wanted the encaustic piece to be the focal, so I didn’t want to cover up too much of it. I ended up just adding some die cuts to help frame it.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. Wow, Karen, that’s beautiful! Does the crayon stick to your iron forever (so you have to use an old iron) or does it clean off easily? I love the effect! You’ve taught me a new technique. 🙂 Thanks for joining us at FYI!
