Mastering primary layers with MPO™ - bees wax paste mixed with oil based pigments creating spontaneous images or as a base for advanced encaustic painting.
Thank-you for the tutorial on using the MPO. I have had it for a little while but I've been hesitant to use it until today. I am excited to begin a new and different technique. Your work is inspiring! Also, thank-you for sharing your inspiration behind some of your pieces.
Very exciting to see growing up your painting and the steps, the process. Thanks for sharing and for the opportunity to watch your painting. You have in your new works much more white tones. It makes the paintings in my eyes else more clear, bright and creates else more movement and festive character. I like it so much. My bow for your talent and all your results. All the best to you.
I would like to mention that this approach is a basic how to start, and of course, you take it to the point where you like your painting to be.Layers should be thin as your creation will evolve stronger, so you don't have to spend too much MPO at the beginning.Yes latex is very afordable and I don't see any difference between gesso and this.Latex is much faster for the action.
Thank you very much. Latex is a lot cheaper than encaustic gesso. I like that. Looking forward to working on this today and will hopefully have something to show soon.
I'm not using encaustic gesso, instead a thin coat of latex > either white primer or you can also start direct onto birch board , nonetheless latex is always good and fast.( On the demo you saw I haven't apply anything on the birch board > just MPO mixed with gold dry pigment,and the rest oil based paints).No need to have a special oil paints.Regular set ( most of them are all good today). This demo painting was shown for the purpose you receive your tin of MPO and in fact how to basically start to paint ,using coloured bees wax paste, with it. I'm frequently using gas torch. ..and again, this demo-video doesn't show it because there is no need so far.I said I leave it for overnight and next day it can be sealed with heat source. It can be sealed right after painting process, but no need as I mentioned.When you create an interesting areas , or design, etc... you'd like to preserve it , that's why I said to leave it to next day, and you can continue to paint right over, as painting is already pretty much more stable for additional over layering and adding contours on sharp edges or so..All can be done in one day , or all can be done in span of a few days , depends how precise or how meticulous you'd like to have your work. Sealing your painting entirely then burn in can be performed at the very end with encaustic glossy finish.
let me know... I'm glad to be helpful.
You did a nice job with this video Antonin - I watched it several times already (well, not in a row though - spread over a couple of days :)) That way I really got each moment's value.
To see how thin the layers can be, how fast they are built up with different colours, to watch the cut back and carving through, to realise the re-use of those wax slithers and to find your beautiful resulting artworks - its a great learning curve you created with this video Antonin. A good skill block and a valuable stimulation to practice these foundational techniques for Master Paste Original. I certainly will - nice work ... !
