Publisher Comments:

Plaster, shellac and tar, oh my

Rusting and burning, carving and spackling, tarring and flocking: These are just a few of the unique and surprising techniques author Patricia Trish Baldwin Seggebruch shares with you in Encaustic Mixed Media

New to encaustic? With Trish leading the way, you can start today And if you've dabbled in encaustic before, the creative approach and new materials and techniques used in this book will blow you away

Encaustic Mixed Media includes:

- Unexpected art supplies: From the craft store to the hardware store to the art supply store, author Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch shatters the conventions of what are and are not art supplies. Shellac? Yes. Tar? Sure. Drywall tape and patching plaster? Of course But it doesn't stop there. You'll mix these offbeat, unexpected materials with some others that are a tad more traditional, like decorative papers, sparkly glass bead gels and pastels.

- Embellishment mini-demos: Why use ordinary, everyday embellishments when you can make cool ones yourself? Die-cut papers, glue-molded structural elements and fire-treated papers and plastics: These are just a few of the unique embellishments you'll learn to create.

- Visual inspiration: Treat yourself to plenty of inspiring eye-candy, and savor amazing combinations of color, texture and technique. Plenty of gallery pieces throughout the book will make you want to get started right away

Encaustic Mixed Media presents a plethora of unique techniques and materials and just the right amount of expertise; you'll find beauty and surprises on every page. Add Encaustic Mixed Media to your creativity toolbox and expand your artistic horizons today
