Encaustic and Collage Art


Encaustic and Collage ArtVicki has always been involved deeply in various aspects of creative arts. As such she is focused on sharing her journey to art and how life events can shape us through creativity as long as the piece has something new to learn. Though she has been a fiber artist working with silk thread and the smallest silk gauze for needlepoint, she has also been doing quilting and she brings below a way of making a quilt pattern created in deli paper and encaustic.

Materials include:

  • Razor Blade
  • Deli Paper
  • Heat Gun
  • Encaustic medium
  • Ranger Tacking Iron
  • 6″x 7″ Luan panel

Steps to follow include:

  • Prime the panel with two coats of clear medium, fusing each with heat gun.
  • Use template pieces cut direct from thin encaustic medium.Deli Paper can be used to rescueif there is a mess of pasta.
  • Precut the pieces you need and dip the required number of pieces into the same color mixture so it would resemble print fabric. You can the mono – print each piece on both sides using tweezers
  • Put your work on a board and decide on size laser print you want for your collage.
  • You can now make the shapes you want.

Once you have done all that victory is declared and the creativity moral to cling on should be “learning is the healing power towards creativity”.
