HAS ANYONE HAD SUCCESS IN LETTING WATER BASED OILS DRY AND THEN COMBINING WITH MEDIUM TO CREATE ENCAUSTIC PAINT?

Richard, I work with oils as classic medium mixing with bees wax cold condition and result is very fine...not sure about water based oils ( to me it sounds already fishy ;-)) ...

ANTONIN,THANKS FOR THE REPLY, I HAVE WORKED WITH DORLANDS AND OIL BASED PIGMENTS, THIS IS SOMETHING ELSE I'M TRYING[NOT CUNI] BUT WATER BASED OILS THAT I'VE LET DRY  RECOMBINED WITH A SLIGHTLY WET SURFACE,LET DRY,THEN COVERED WITH WAX MEDIUM AND THEN I'M HOPEFUL OF CREATING AN IMAGE IN WAX,ALLOWING SOME OF THE UNDERPAINTING TO SHOW THROUGH.

That sounds exciting but I still believe layers of pigmented wax should be fused and sealed together..this wax if you under lay your painting then wax over it's a bit out of encaustic creation....  just like aqaurelle and you seal it with varnish... what do you think, Richard what I say.....I'm curious !

Good Morning Richard,

I just saw you were inquiring about water mixable oil paint and encaustic. I have had very good success with them. I use them in thin layers and fuse them to the wax, let them dry over night ,just to make sure and seal with a layer of wax and on and on. I find I'm able to achieve an interesting depth and translucency that I find unique to only encaustic. The trick is to keep the layers as thin as possible, almost like layers of glass.

If I were you, I just cut up a bunch of 4x8" inches of plywood and start experimenting. Then do the acid test and pop them into the freezer. If they crack bubble or pop they are not archival.

Hope that helps, I also have a video using them on You-tube, Encaustic Painting by Paula Blackwell
