Create your own colour cards and never forget a colour!
Encaustic Art has an assortment of 48 different colour wax blocks.
But which colours are those exactly?
Do you know all the different colours? Or do you get confused every time?
Make colour cards for reference material for yourself. This way you can compare colours and get to know them better.
It takes some time, but once finished you can always look back at these wax cards. It is so much easier to order new colours!
Use the stylus to paint each wax colour on encaustic paper.
Cut out the shapes and stick them behind the correct colour.
Colour directly with the wax on the copy paper. A double reference and you know exactly what the colour looks like!
