Layering drawing media

3 types of drawing media in 3 layers: India ink, graphite and charcoal. The first marks were made on an un-primed board, the second marks were on a layer of wax medium and the final marks were done on the surface of the wax.

    1. Yes. I use “Speedball Super Black India Ink” and this product has a “superior lightfastness” rating. It is important to use India ink rather than a dye-based ink so the color will not fade. Encaustic is a natural preservative due to the beeswax, however it has no UV properties.
