This is an original encaustic painting.

Composed of paper collage, seed pods, drawing, and acrylic paint, I melted layers of encaustic wax to seal everything into place. Once dried, the encaustic creates a natural matte finish, which I then buff to an ultra soft, sateen sheen. The melting/layering nature of encaustic creates a finished surface that is somewhat uneven; thick in some areas, while thinner in has a true feel of handmade in each piece! The encaustic also dries to a warm, see-through, almost buttery yellow glow and reveals a soft beeswax aroma.
