I'm Not an Addict, It's Cool....

No, really.

I can step away from this new technique and not think about it. Not get distracted when I'm supposed to be working. I can. I have it under control.
NO I DON'T. MY NAME IS LYDIA AND I'M ADDICTED TO WAX!!!

Encaustic wax, that is. We have a tutorial coming out in the Splitcoast Newsletter today so soon you will all be hooked too, my little stampy zombies. Mwaaahhaaaaaa!
I first saw this technique in the fine art galleries in Santa Fe. My sister and I almost fainted when we saw the beautiful landscapes artists made. We even went to an art supply store and found some insanely expensive supplies for it, and I promptly put it out of my mind.

But then this tutorial came up and Beate talked me into trying it. And no one will ever see either of us again.
First of all, it's not as expensive as it was in Santa Fe. Second, it's really easy and addicting. And finally - it's BEAUTIFUL!!

I will post another sample later today and a detailed tutorial. But how about those mountains, eh?
