title:
Flowers For A Picnic
24 x 24" Encaustic
$1,750.00
In an ancient Egyptian & Greek technique using layers of beeswax, resin crystals and pigment, a heated beeswax/resin mix is brushed on wood. As it cools, oil paint is applied for the first layer of the painting. The clear beeswax mix is brushed on top. Heating with a blow torch bonds the layers together. This process is repeated several times, with pigment in between the many levels of wax, allowing color to show through. This creates a soft depth and translucent quality.

media: wax, resin, paper,fabric, oil paint, wood
