Each little ribbon is hand cut from paper then hand stained. Once dried and pressed they are then suspended between layers of clear encaustic medium to create a thick translucent surface. When the wax is fused into the paper the paper shapes become translucent. In areas where the wax application is thickest there is a subtle depth to the wax. I use a torch to manipulate and fuse the wax this gives my surfaces a beautifully textured finish.
Encaustic (bees wax & damar resin), ink, paper and water media on a 9x12 panel, mounted on a painted wood panel (11x14) in a white frame (12.5"x15.5"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 12x15) - 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.
