I am in LUV with these boards

Finally was able to work in the studio today and tried out the Ampersand Encausticbord.  I filmed the video at 3pm and I have not stopped working in the studio 6 hours later.

In the video I used the small boards, but I also have a 24×24 board and when I unwrapped the board, I could not stop rubbing my hands over the surface. WOW!!! Ampersand and R&F really made a great product. I no longer will have to prep my clayboards with encaustic gesso.

So I started working on the large board and all I can say is that I finally felt that my work and the board are now one.  I know that may sound odd, but I always felt that my wax was just laying on top of my boards. No matter how much I fused.

I also like the white finish, as I always use a white ground in my work.

Besides the texture, the wax and the surface just work together. For those who have ever worked on a board that you would layer and fuse, and fuse and fuse, you may know what I am talking about.

My only problem is that there is not a local distributor in South Florida. I just hate paying for shipping.
