Encaustic Wax Painting

My local art group - Spalding Art & Craft Society - has monthly demonstrations. This month it was Carole Boyer showing us how to create encaustic wax paintings with a hot iron. The second half of the demo was a 'try' session and I must admit I was hooked. These are my first attempts, all done in about 30 mins. The small ones are A6, the larger is A5.

I'll definitely be giving it a go at home once I've ordered the equipment - iron, pigmented beeswax and glossy paper.
