Artist of the week Joanne Schempp - Tera's view
I really love how this project turned out!!! I have been playing with encaustic wax painting lately but some how my paper arts/rubber stamping addiction always has to get in on the action :)
I first built up many layers of wax - painting first several clear layers and then alternating colored layers with clear to get the backround the way I wanted it.
Next I used a transfer technique for the ship - made a large copy onto regular printer paper and rubbed it into the wax - then wetting the paper somewhat rubbed off the paper which leaves just the image in the wax.
The pirate I had colored with prismacolor pencils onto Neenah 'desert storm' which is a smooth kraft cardstock and I layed him on top of a warm layer of wax and added several layers of wax ontop of him to hold him in place.
Both images are by Joanne Schempp - 'The Black Pearl' and 'Ancient One' and are both available as rubber stamps and as digis' (and believe it or not I have both versions of both...)
Lastly I added a couple oyster shells and a black pearl and gold sword make with clay (the sword with a mold)
All for today - Take Care
Craftaholic and aspiring artist - I love rubberstamping(coloring with my pencils or copics) altered art, zentangle, locker hook, and my newest venture is encautic wax painting. I am wife to DH (Tom), Mom to DD and DS (Paula and Jack both in college), pet mama to 2 very spoiled pups and 2 rotten kitties, and I work full time as a Critical Care Nurse (for the last 30+ years).
