I tried working with the Ceracolors again. This time, I didn't plan to heat them. I worked on Bristol board with a plate finish, which is a very smooth surface. I usually don't work on papers with a completely smooth finish, like bristol or hot press, but I do like the looser feeling that I am forced to get using this finish. It's very hard (for me) to get smooth washes on this surface, which is good, because it forces me to work in a different manner.
It was fun working with the Ceracolors, but I was using them by painting thin veils of color, which doesn't really show the waxy appearance for which they are intended. Next time I won't thin them so much and will paint more layers to see what results I can get. Also, I still need to try mixing them with my encaustic paints to see what happens.
So much to do......
