Due Date: March 3
Signup/Withdrawal Date: Feb. 25
Number of Players: Unlimited
Number of Cards: 3 for 3
Media: Open - hd/hp; collage; mixed media; (no digital or loose glitter)

This is an Open Media Swap for ATCs portraying rainbows. Just FYI, the “official” rainbow colors, in order, are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
Your rainbows can be bright and whimsical or very realistic. They can be close up with part of the arch going off the card, or they can be depicted off in the distance. They can be paired with other objects, like Noah’s Ark, pots of gold, thatched roof cottages, even partially stormy skies with the rainbow peeking through.
Remember, rainbows have always symbolized promise and hope. My hope is that you will be inspired to join us, and do share pictures of your finished cards if you can.

GUIDELINES and MAILING:

- Please PM for my address when cards are ready to mail.
- Place each 2 1/2” x 3 1/2” card in its own plastic sleeve for protection.
- Be sure it qualifies as a “card”and doesn’t easily bend into a U-shape.
- Please spread evenly within the envelope, using Washi or painters tape (Scotch tape can tear the sleeves).
- Please write your username, real name, and swap title on the back of each card.
- USA players, please include a large address label plus one Forever stamp. I will provide envelopes.
- International players, please enclose your address label plus $1 USA or a Global Forever stamp. I will provide envelopes.
- An extra “host card” is always appreciated, but never necessary in order to play.
- When returns are received, please be sure to leave iTrader for your host, and “you rock” points for those who created your returns.

My cards, all encaustic wax painting.

CiCiCreates
02-25-2021, 02:37 PM
Those are just so cool!! I’ve always loved encaustics, and never learned how to do it. I even have a tiny craft iron I could use, according to one tutorial. Did you learn hands on, or through a tutorial?

mrubyjean
02-25-2021, 02:48 PM
I'm definitely still learning!
But I was lucky enough to have taken a hands-on class specifically on encaustic painting on ATCs many years ago (when I lived in Seattle). The instructor demonstrated techniques with this little heat tool that has 4 different attachments (and which I instantly bought!).

I also have a couple of books, both by Michael Bossom -- Encaustic Wax: How to paint with wax and The Encaustic Art Project Book.
