Dragging is an interesting technique in encaustic monotype.
- apply a design to the hot palette ( I use Rand F palette) using pigmented encaustic ( I use R and F)
- place your paper on top of the design and use a barren to ensure all the encaustic is absorbed into the paper; experiment with various types of paper
- take two corners of the paper and drag the paper in a circular motion. It is a very random act and you don't know what will happen to the original design. It is also interesting to drag vertically or horizontally or in partial circles.
- clean your palette and apply a second colour in places ( I like metallics for this step) and place the same print down again to pick up a second layer by dragging
- repeat this step several times adding more visual information to the original monotype.
