The ways to use it challenge was to use crayons. I saw Birgit's card before I started this and I had never heard of encaustic before looking at her sample (which I loved) and so I googled encaustic and decided to make my own version of an encaustic background. I have no idea how she made hers. I devised my own method with driping melted crayons onto my card stock and then blowing and spreading the color around. My husband said it looked like a watermelon if I added black spots - well it is melon manbo! It was fun anyway!
