What do you do after you submit your AP portfolios?

You try out a new media. Yesterday students in the AP art class got to experiment with encaustics, which is painting with hot wax. Some students used it along with collage while others used the colored wax to paint.

Here the students prep their boards with modeling paste, crackle medium, and paint.

The wax is brushed on and then can be manipulated with a heat gun or carved into with different tools.

As soon as we are done with this I'll post pictures of the finished work.
