You Will Need*....

*If you don't have the proper encaustic equipment, you could test it out first with a travel iron, some wax crayons or candles and photographic paper... but for best results use the materials in the introduction section.
HOW THIS ALL WORKS:
The first lecture is a quick overview incase you haven't used your equipment in a while, or maybe you're new to encaustic. It's a quick talk through the materials needed, and alternative options if you don't have everything on the equipment list straight away. You can view this video now for free.
I also help you with supplies here if you need them.
If you're already familiar with encaustic wax, and have your own equipment, you can skip this section.
Next is the main tutorial; I guide you step by step to create the card shown in the photograph above. It's a short, fifteen minute video, no fluff, no chat, just the exact steps you need to complete this project, from start to finish.
Stop and start the video, slow it down, or speed it up, to follow along at your own pace.
Video Two gives you alternative card ideas; different stamps, and other tips and tricks if you don't have any stamps to work with.
You can still create really effective and beautiful greetings cards. There are loads of ideas to spark your imagination off in this video!
Lastly, I've added a final video showing you how to edge your encaustic art works to give them a little extra va-va-voom...
