Each little shape is hand cut and then hand stained. They are then suspended between layers of clear encaustic medium to create a thick translucent surface which draws the viewer into the piece. When the wax is fused into the paper the paper shapes become translucent.
Encaustic (bees wax & damar resin), water media, ink & paper on a 11x14 wood panel, mounted on a painted wood panel (16x20) in a white frame (17.5x21.5"x1.75" - total measurements including frame - no glass). Signed, dated and titled on the back. Ready to hang!
Frames are a personal preference, I frame everything in white to highlight the artwork for photographs, the white frame is included for free (and makes the dimensions slightly larger than 16x20) - it is your choice to keep it in the white frame (I think they are lovely!) or to reframe in a frame that suits your personal taste
