"The quality of the Encausticbord products is great, the panels and cradles are made for the purpose and this shows, I really enjoy working with these supports. . . makes Encaustic even more fun!" ~Hazel Rayfield
Self taught painter, Hazel Rayfield, has been enjoying working with encaustics for the past several years and recently took some time to share her technique with us on Encausticbord™.
Hazel has been working in a variety of media throughout her painting career, including oil, acrylic and watercolor, but she has found a passion for encaustic. "I find working with wax as a painting medium can be a challenge but I just love to see what I can do with it, it is very versatile, from thin layers on card to deep layers on solid supports. The texture and the sheen of the wax is amazing and it has endless possibilities," she explains.
In the following videos from our YouTube channel, Hazel demonstrates both our Encausticbord and R+F encaustic paints. She works in several ideas on the Artist Trading Card size of Encausticbord and completes an entire piece on a cradled board.
