Step 1: Get your Ground ready
First things first.
Get your encaustic medium ready. this means, your beeswax and damar crystals have to be completely dissolved in your fondue or crock pot, and you've added the white pigment. I'm assuming you know how to do this.
Put your paint down on a fairly thick piece of plywood or wood.
Once you've got a layer of white beeswax medium on your ground, you can move on to the next step.
