Paper clay & wax bowls

Oh how I love encaustic wax medium. It’s my new favorite medium. I want to cover everything in wax. Is that weird?  Yes, that would be weird,  I guess. So so fun though!

These are the little paper clay bowls that I made the other day. I did a teeny bit of paint and the covered the insides with wax medium. I did some carving, stamping and more paint.  The bottoms have layers of paper, paint and matte varnish.

These were heavily influenced by THIS BOOK, that I recently got in the mail.  It’s such a lovely book. I haven’t been able to find plaster gauze and I must get me some joint compound and other plaster goodies.

    I think the plaster is what they make casts out of – it may be cheaper to find it that way? How did you make the paperclay bowls- and do you have to be careful about the wax if you use the bowl or is it for display?
    Your creativity is amazing! I’m also saving bottle caps for you!

    Very interesting! I haven’t gotten into the “wax thing” yet, but you have done something very neat with it here!
