 I went to an artist demonstration today at Kim Tinuviel's studio as part of the Whidbey Art Trail events. She is a photographer and an encaustic artist, both of which I am also interested in.
 Part of her demo was doing a transfer onto a beeswax-covered board. She started with a laser print of her photo, and burnished it onto the board. Then she wet the paper and carefully rubbed it off, leaving the image.
 Next, she 'fused' the layer into the beeswax with a heat gun, then added another layer of wax. At the top is the board after she added some colored wax, and she went on to show us some other ways to play with the wax to create texture and add color. It was really interesting!
