My name is Raven Voss and I am an Encaustic artist. I love painting with wax and incorporating all my favorite things into my work. Paper, keys, birds, vintage maps, old postcards and romantic old letters, dictionary pages, all types of printed words and what ever I can find that moves me.
One of my new favorite tools to use with my encaustic art are The Crafter’s Workshop Stencils. These stencils are so lovely, easy to use and they really make my life so much easier. Plus there are so many to choose from, there is a stencil for everyone.
One of the reasons these stencils are so perfect for wax and my work is that you can paint the wax directly on top of the stencil, fuse and simply remove the stencil. It’s like magic! The way The Crafter’s Workshop Stencils allow me to incorporate 3-D wax into my work is really exciting. I used to spend hours painting and fusing three dimensional wax, now with the stencils I have much more flexibility.
The uses for The Crafter’s Workshop stencils in my work seems endless and I can’t wait for my next series of paintings. Here are just a few….
