There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I'm pretty sure I own every book out there in regards to Encaustic techniques. With each new release of an "encaustic how to book", the level and variety of instruction supersedes the other. I think Patricia has succeeded in raising the bar on instructional art books. Particularly in the encaustic painting with wax area. It is a comprehensive book and includes a variety of techniques. I don't think she left anything out and included inspiration to explore further.
I also find the step by step instructions to be complete. Too many art instruction books have lots of pretty pictures and not enough of the "how to" content. This is not the case here; you get both.
Lots of pictures, lots of instruction, lots of content. This is the perfect book for anyone wanting to learn how to work in encaustic and for those who have some experience but want more. I highly recommend this book. This book's blurb says as do breathless Amazon reviewers that it is "packed with step-by-step techniques" and "diverse examples of completed works," so I was surprised that this book is so limited in scope. The problem with buying books on the internet is that you can't thumb through them.
If I had been able to, I would have known in 5 seconds that this was not the book I was looking for. The instruction and photos are clear and precise--if you want to create works similar to the author's. Her works are color and texture washes that may include found objects, craft papers, photos, and scrap-booking doodads embedded in the wax.
In fact, most of these pieces rely on commercial, mass-produced items to add "interest" and "meaning," as the author says. Nothing wrong with that, if that's what you want to do. But there is very little here to get you started if that is not what you want to do. I take it back! If you want to do representational or figurative work in encaustic, this book will not overtly help with that part. It really is mostly about texture, color, and collage.
Encaustic Workshop: Artistic Techniques for Working with Wax | All Things Encaustic
However, as the author's ideas "cooked" in my brain, over time, I found I adapted and used some of the techniques presented. As for the author's paintings and the ready-made items in them, I realize that for people who are intimidated about making art, or are insecure about their drawing skills, her book could give them the ideas and confidence to delve in and play, and there's nothing wrong with that. I am a professional painter and college art professor with a short attention span for learning new techniques. Having taken one workshop in encaustic I wanted to set up a station in my studio to play around with different techniques.
The workshop was a few months ago so I needed a simple overview with samples of techniques. This book was perfect. I was able to highlight the techniques I was interested in exploring, make a shopping list for basic supplies and get into the studio and experiment. I only gave it 4 stars because the samples were very "crafty" and not "serious fine art".
Would have liked to see what serious professional artists are doing with the medium but will have to explore that on my own. This book created a monster in me! Now I want to do nothing but create encaustic art night and day Can you tell that I love this book? Patricia Seggebruch shows lots of photos of her work and then explains how she created them step-by-step.
