Encaustic Effects with Acrylic Paint: 3 Stunning Examples

On rare occasions, I like to use this space to let the artwork speak for itself, and today is one of those days. We recently featured a cool new mixed-media art technique that uses acrylic paint to mimic the look of encaustics. You can find an example of one of these techniques here, but today I’d like to take a few moments and let our eyes gaze on what can be done with this fascinating (and easy) method.

The following paintings are from Sandra Duran Wilson’s book Acrylic Painting for Encaustic Effects: 45 Wax Free Techniques, which is part of this exclusive Encaustic Effects in Acrylic Value Pack that includes Sandra’s book and related workshop DVDs.

Aren’t these beautiful? I hope you allowed yourself a quiet moment to take them in and become absorbed in the colors and textures. Imagine the compelling layered art you’ll create when you learn Sandra’s mixed-media art techniques. Click here for the Encaustic Effects in Acrylic Value Pack today–you can only find it in the Interweave store.
