Oh man, the City Museum is absolute HEAVEN (I will always be a kid Cheesy). I went to St. Louis a about a year ago and and completely fell in love. We didn't have a lot of time to do things, but everything we got to do was awesome (except for when the arch swayed in the wind- kind of scary). And your site is really cute Smiley

You don't need a hook- you just slip it under the loop and push it over. It's actual name is spool knitting. And like I said, that might not be it at all- especially since there was no spool found with it, it just looks like what I have. It definitely sounds like it could be a stylus.

I could be very wrong, but in picture two the tool is an exact match to the tool I have to go with a  spool knitting thing I got as a kid. I don't remember the exact name, but it's a cylinder and has four prongs at the top and you wind the yarn around them and then pull them over the next layer of loops. I'll try to find the name. It may not be that at all, especially if the spool wasn't in there. I hope you find out what all of those neat tools are and how to use them! They look like fun Wink

I am so glad you posted this! We talked about encaustic in art appreciation class, and I've been wondering what the best way to go about trying it would be. So thank you!

balkandina: here are a couple links for examples.

Encaustic was used to do funeral pictures of people back in Egypt. Here's an example of a young boy's picture:

Jasper Johns kind of made encaustic famous again in the 1950's, you can find one of his artworks here:
