Clean up time

posted in: Blog | 0

I tend to make huge messes when my creative passion takes over! I pull everything out and I use something, put it to my right (which isn’t where it may belong)! There is the heat gun, and it doesn’t cool off, so I have to be careful I don’t melt something or touch and burn myself! I am sooo focused on my process, that I don’t think! Can anyone relate?

Just yesterday I spent an hour cleaning up, and then I realize I want to make my own encaustic wax, which I haven’t done for years. It takes an hour to just adjust the right temp so I won’t burn the wax, but will melt the resin. Of course I don’t look up directions because I think I can remember how. It would have actually gone faster, but I just can’t break my focus. I am going to take a photo of my new mess,
