Layered Wax Type by Keetra Dean Dixon and JK Keller

Fantastic wax type pieces by Keetra Dean Dixon and Jonathan Keller Keller.

Keetra describes her process in the latest edition of 8 Faces Magazine:

“We cut positive type forms and position them on the top of the grid, and we take hot wax and manually start coating all of those letterforms and catching the drips underneath in the basins. And as the layers cool, we shift the colour of the wax that we’re applying to them and we manually layer again and again until it builds up a mass of wax. […] Then we have to take the positive letterforms out of the interior of the wax piece.”
