I Love doing encaustic painting. It's so quick and easy to create a quick card...
The rubber stamp quote on the inside is by Quietfire Design and the "Season's Greetings" die from Elizabeth Craft Designs also available on Quietfire Design HERE
Click on any image to enlarge or click HERE to go to my web page.
Use a fry pan or electric skillet. Cover the fry pan completely in tin foil.
Cut another piece of tin foil, edges folded under and folded in half to create a platform to do your encaustic painting.
Use EnKaustikos hot sticks or Crayolla wax crayons to paint with. Temperature should be lowest setting somewhere around 150º. You'll know if your wax is just swimming too quickly... PS, don't forget you will probably be getting a reverse image so place your wax design accordingly...
Works best when put onto a thin Rice paper - I used Sumi-E Painting and Calligraphy paper. Also works with tissue paper, but you have to be a bit more careful. Experiment with different paper surfaces.
After painting on the foil, lay paper (for rice paper - smooth side down) onto hot wax image (above left image). Lightly brayer over the image to connect the wax to paper. Careful the wax is runny so don't press too hard and smear the wax. Lift paper off and the result you get is above right picture. Now this may not look so great as is... put trimmed down, adhered to contrasting or accenting cardstock and details added to the painting... PS with some papers the other side is great to use as well.
Side folded my white card (5"w x 7"h). Embossed with Couture Creations "Mini Poinsettia" embossing folder.
I created my encaustic painting of the poinsettia, trimmed down and adhered to a red cardstock. Added Liquid Pearls "Buttercup" dots in the center. Adhered to card front.
Die cut the "Season's Greetings from gold glitter paper, adhered to front.
On the inside: stamped the poinsettia (Penny Black) inking the stamp with Distress mini pads "Mustard Seed" in the center, "Fired Brick" on the petals, and the edge of the pad "Mowed Lawn" along the pine sprigs and stamped.
Stamped the quote inking with the red all over and then touching here and there with the green, stamping, and clear embossing.
What a work of art! I love the colors and the poinsettia inside is gorgeous as well. Thanks for sharing your talent!
This is beautiful! I have never heard of encaustic painting, thanks for introducing me to it!
Mind blowing! Out of the box creation! Thanks for sharing the steps, a new technique for me too! Your poinsettia is very pretty, love this!
Wow! What a great technique and so effective! Amazing and a beautiful card! TFS!
I've recently added a few of these word dies to my collection and I love them....the font style is so pretty....dies and stamps. Love your card and find your technique very interesting. I must give this a try. I actually have some rice paper that was given to me by a friend who brought it back from Japan...handmade, of course. I have had it a while and every time I bring it out, I cannot bring myself to cut it. LOL Jan D., FL
Simply gorgeous! Loving these dies!
Lovely! I've done encaustic work with an iron but never this way, thanks.
Oh my...This is different and very artistic. Pretty.
Love both cards, Yogi. That encaustic idea is very unique, you are so imaginative :)
gorgeous card. thanks for the tute on how you did it. not sure i'm ready for that yet. who knows. i'll save it to my maybe I can some day file. love it.
I love the poinsettia embossing. Your painted poinsettia on the front of the card is beautiful. It has a muted look that is great.
The inside of the card would make a wonderful outside too.
thanks for sharing.
Wow! What a fabulous job with the encaustic wax! Gorgeous!
What a beautiful poinsettia, Yogi! You're so good with this technique, and thanks for explaining it!
Oh Yogi, this is such a beautiful card design & I love the technique! Not brave enough to try it, though. Lol
Your colors, melting time, gorgeous sentiment = perfect! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
This is AMAZING Yogi! I have always wanted to try encaustic, but never had directions. Now I do, and can't wait to try this sometime.
As usual, Yogi, you have created such beauty. How original! Thank you for teaching this style.
This card is simply stunning! I can't believe how you created your focal flower. It's beautiful and creative too. The tutorial is wonderful. I love that you created a card that has the inside completed too. You do not see too many cards that have an inside image and sentiment. Your card is 150% perfect!
Beautiful card Yogi!! I didn't realize you could do encaustic with crayons!!! Thank you for sharing!
I have never done encaustic in a fry pan like this....... a new challenge to be sure! Thanks for the lesson. I love how the cards turned out.

What a beautiful card. Thanks for sharing the technique.
Love it Yogi.......you did another wonderful creation.
Wow -- your poinsettia is fantastic;I thought at first it was a stamp image. Love the look of the sentiment die cut from glitter paper.
Oh, I love poinsettias! You did a great job with both techniques and the embossed background panel sets the flowers off beautifully. Well done and very artistic.
What a fantastic
technique to use
on your lovely

Such beautiful cards you have created, Yogi! Love them both! I am really fond of these new Quietfire design stamps and dies! After seeing your cards, I think they just moved to the top of my wish list...Let's hope Santa get's my list now! LOL!
Beautiful cards and awesome tutorial. So creative! Thanks for the inspiration.
So fun to find someone who does encaustic wax cards. Beautifully done, with a great tutorial. Love that Season's Greeting die and the beautifully stamped flower and sentiment inside the card. Nice work.
I really enjoy this classic elegant combo! I love how your cards are so lovely on the inside too.
Beautiful cards, and the poinsettias are gorgeous!

A stunning card! I am not familiar with the encaustic technqiue. Thank you for sharing your instructions and your beautiful creation.
Thanks for the new way of making cards, this is truly a work of art.
Beautiful Yogi! I've never seen this technique before.
I love poinsettias and your use of them in this card are absolutely wonderful. A fascinating technique with crayons too!
Thanks for the step by step tutorial on doing encaustic. The card you made is lovely and the gold sentiment gives it such elegance.
Yogi, I didn't know you were working in encaustic. Your poinsettia is just beautiful.
I just commented as anonymous Yogi, Linda Tanaka, didn't know you were doing encaustic work now, but your card is stunning
Interesting technique. Especially like the stamped poinsettia.
I really have to try this technique. Beautiful!
This is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing this great technique.
this is such an awesome idea. Love the card.
Gorgeous! I hadn't seen this technique before so I may need to try it!
Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing this technique.

Pointsettias are one of my favorite flowers (even if I can't spell it) LOL Love this card so awesome.
This card is aweaome - tfs! And thanks for the chance to win!!
This is so gorgeous, Yogi! Muttering to self, goodwill for the skillet, and probably crayons.....
Seriously love the art, inside and out. Very nice!
What a stunning card. The contrast between the unstructured look of the poinsettia and the crisp, elegant greeting is fabulous. I have seen the crayon technique before, a long, long time ago. I would never be able to replicate it had it not been for your very generous instructions. Thank you for sharing your art with the rest of us.
Fabulous, Yogi. I bought encaustic waxes years ago and have yet to use them. This is inspiring me to give it a go.
