Encaustic Exploration #4

I've been out of the studio for the last few weeks entertaining my parents and face it, without air conditioning it's way to hot to be sitting near a pancake griddle of molten wax in a south facing garage. So when I'm bored I've been perusing Youtube to see what techniques I can try out. I discovered this great series Wax on Wednesdays with artist Shari Replogle.

So I had a can of all the scrapings from #3 and melted them down without stirring.  It started off really cool but, when I fused it really melded together more than I wanted. So I went back in with some oil pastels to delineate some color. Not bad for the first try with basically detritus hanging around. So yes, basically this is a trash painting.
