Each shape is hand cut from natural fiber papers. 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.
These look great in pairs or groups!
Encaustic (bees wax & damar resin) papers, and oil on an thick cradled wood panel. Sides are painted gray with the occasional drip of wax. Signed, dated and titled on the back. Ready to hang!
