Hello! Last Thursday, I shared my Starry Night Mirror with you that I made using stencils, a wood burning tool, and Inka Gold from Artistcellar.com. Today I thought you might like to learn more about Inka Gold. It is such a wonderful, versatile product!
Inka Gold is a water-based, non-toxic, metallic beeswax paste paint that is designed to work on porous surfaces. Traditional encaustics are paint mixed with beeswax and applied with heat. But, with Inka Gold, you can get a beautiful, metallic beeswax finish without using heat. That’s why I am calling it “cold encaustic.”
This 16:20 video shares lots of information about Inka Gold available from Artistcellar.com:
- Opening a new jar of Inka Gold
- Easy application: rub on and buff
- Add water to use as a glaze or a wash
- Different applicators to try with Inka Gold
- Applying Inka Gold to wood (like my Starry Night Mirror)
- Applying Inka Gold to chipboard
- Using Inka Gold to bring out texture
- Inka Gold works fabulously with stencils
- Use your stencils all you want and they clean right up
I hope that this video shows you some of the versatility of Inka Gold and also how easy it is to use. I love the easy clean up, too! A sheer layer is all you need for opaque coverage that adds such a lovely, rich, shimmery shine that looks amazing in real life!
