Abeille is the French word for honeybee. This painting is made of beeswax and has been distressed with a lovely patina. It would be perfect in a garden room, nursery, on a shelf or anywhere you need a little bit of summer. I can create this piece in other sizes if you desire - just contact me for details.

.....................................
Materials:
Beeswax, damar resin, oil paint and mixed media elements on a professional wood cradle/canvas. The wooden cradle has an inside opening on the back so a hanger is not necessary - it hangs flat against the wall on two small nails.

Size:
6 x 6 inches (15.2 x 15.2 cm)

Shipping:
I carefully wrap and protect each piece to ensure it arrives safely. Shipped via Priority Mail within the US.

What is Encaustic?
Encaustic is an ancient technique where beeswax and damar resin are melted together to create a medium that can be used in a variety of ways. Layers of encaustic medium are painted on sturdy substrate, usually wood, and each layer is fused together with heat. Encaustic gives an ethereal feel and has a beautiful luminosity.

Will it melt?
Beeswax has a melting point of around 160 degrees so it's not necessary to keep it in a cool room, however, it's recommended to keep it away from heat sources such as fireplaces and heaters.
