My next article, Encaustic Basics Part II – Preparing Substrates, Fusing, and adding Color was published today on Creating Mixed Media Art. If you missed Part I of this series you can read it here. I’m so excited to share this information with new encaustic artists!

This series will show you how to gather tools, equipment, products, and begin encaustic painting in an easy and economical way. There is a lot of information out there and it is sometimes difficult to filter out what is useful to the beginner encaustic artist.

I will be writing about my favorite techniques for encaustic and mixed media art throughout the next several months. In the mean time here is a list of articles that will appear on Creating Mixed Media Art for 2014. If you have questions about your own encaustic painting, don’t hesitate to contact me via email: elainebradysmith@comcast.net or through my Facebook page: Elaine Brady Smith Art.
