Encaustics & Pan Pastels

Hello everyone! It's Jane Bellante from Jane Bellante Art. I'm so excited to be back to share with you one of my favorite ways to stencil with Pan Pastels.




















I have been obsessed with encaustic art for about 10 years or so now.  I absolutely love the depth and dimension it creates, but also - being a total texture junky, I can't get enough of creating different marks and deep texture on my pieces.

One way to add visual interest and beautiful marks is to use pan pastels through stencils over encaustic medium.  The possibilities are absolutely endless!

For this project I used the following products:

Clear encaustic medium

Ultramarine Pale Blue encaustic medium

Unbleached Titanium encaustic medium

Hake brushes

Phthalo Blue Shade pan pastel

Stencil Girl Stencils by Seth Apter:



Bird and Crown transfers by Iron Orchid Designs

I have a full VIDEO TUTORIAL for you right here:

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and thank you so much for watching!!

xo, 

Jane

    2. I love this! I have never heard of Pan Pastels, so definitely looking those up. I love the colors of blue in the piece with the pop of gold-orange in the crown.

    1. You'll get lost down that rabbit hole with soooo many stencil choices! And- if you join the monthly stencil club you'll get stencils that are not available to the general public
