Embossed Metal Encaustic

Students learned about and studied Vincent Van Gogh and his landscape paintings paying close attention to the actual textures he created using paint. Students then created four Van Gogh inspired landscape sketches, chose one and drew their final 6"x8" landscape drawing. Before given their final 6"x8" aluminum foil, they experimented on a smaller 4"x6" aluminum piece learning how to emboss the metal and complete the encaustic process. The process looks like this...Students set their 36 gauge aluminum on top of a skillet, set to low, held the metal from sliding with a pencil and added color by melting crayons on top of the metal.and here are some samples of the final embossed metal encaustic landscapes.
