Back to encaustic for just a tick. Here’s a good post from Pistrucci Artworks blog, source of many ingenious art material solutions. This post offers several recipes for cold wax paste as a medium for oil paint, including one using a citrus oil solvent. Two of these recipes want the user to melt the wax and add turpentine to the heated mixture. Conduct yourselves with caution if you choose to try it this way!
Here are some images and random patterns we found under the counter and boards in the kitchen. If you don’t think about what they actually are (mold and rot and chaotic paint splatters) they can be quite beautiful.
