|Two Pears ~ Encaustic ~ 6 x 6|
Just so you know, there IS a "special" iron for encaustics. One brand is $40, and the other is $50. Since I am on a steep, self-taught, learning curve, I am trying to keep "investments" to a minimum, so a $3 iron is what I am using for the moment. I have read a bunch of blogs and instruction sites, and have seen most of the YouTube videos on encaustics, and some artists use a regular iron, and others say you MUST use the encaustics iron. Do you think this is like other mediums, in that the better quality of materials and tools impact the results? I am not sure ... yet ... but will let you know!
