New for my shop- Photo Encaustics!

I love to collect interesting photographs and I’ve gathered some of my favorites to create original little art pieces. This one is horses and a tepee. Vintage images were reproduced on the best photographic paper, Hahnemuhle photo rag paper, mounted on wood blocks and then sealed with encaustic.

The mounts are cedar, ready to hang and handmade by fellow etsyian FauxKiss. Images are mounted on the blocks with an archival glue and the mounts are hand stained by me.

Encaustic is a combination of bee’s wax and resin. Unlike bee’s wax alone the resin acts as a hardener and protects the image within. It also creates a slight nude coloring and dreamy coating. The surface can be irregular, raised on the edges and slightly scratchy, which adds to the palimpsest and nostalgia of the images. I’ve noted any particular marks below.

Both the encaustic and the wood blocks are unique, so each final piece is different. The original images are vintage and as far as I know have never been reproduced before. So each piece is one of a kind. That’s why I’ve created a separate listing for all these pieces. Here are this blocks details:

+ 4 x 1.5 inches (but also comes in 2.75 and 3.25x 1.5")
+ ready to hang
+ hand stained wood
+ Hahnemuhle photo rag paper
+ distressed paper edges
+ very light layer of wax
+ there is some wax on the side of the piece as shown in the 4th image

Sorry! But for right now I only have ten letters A, C, D, E, J, K, L, M, R, S. I'm planning on making the other letters available as PDF downloads. Always happy to hear you'd like a kit, but not sure when I'll have them available.
Right now I'm working on a book! Yay! So I'm only shipping orders on Fridays. Thanks so much for your patience while I'm working my butt off writing and creating cool projects for you to make.
