PC SUBSTRATES:ENCAUSTICS

"If the PC Substrate™ is placed on a heated surface while painting, the wax flows like glaze. When I fused it with heat, the wax flowed more than on other surfaces. It actually will flow to an absolute smooth flatness, which gives it more of a glaze-like look. The material heats up quickly and cools down just as quickly, giving the artist flexibility.

I had concerns that painting encaustic wax on a non porous surface might chip off easily. It isn't a problem, the wax actually adheres very well.

The translucency of the material and the encaustic paints has led me to think about creating light boxes as a way to display the paintings. " Carol Rae
