Three photos of the attendees. I think I counted 14 of us gathered in Andrea's beautiful studio.
You can barely see the bottom portions of Andrea's latest work. I can't rave enough about her work, technique and knowledge of the art of encaustic.
Plus her studio is a reflection of her disposition; organized, methodical, spare and elegant. *sigh*. Maybe in another lifetime.
This is Amy Stoner's encaustic dessert. She has a blog here.
And now for the piece de resistance; Karl's Cupcake. Oh my cheese and crackers, I just about picked it up and took a bite before I realized it was 100% wax. That's right, plate, cake, icing and candle; WAX. He gets my trophy. Check it out.
Cupcake formed on a wooden base. And yes, the plate is wax too. When I searched for a link to Karl I discovered he has a new (to me) blog too (go here now!) where he shows beautiful photos of his studio and some of his wax techniques. Right away it solved a problem I've had with getting my wax to pop out of the muffin tins; he cleverly uses silicon cupcake papers. Let's go shopping. So thank you Karl, well done!!
