My encaustics are made using beeswax to coat a photograph that is printed handmade fibered paper. The image is mounted on a cradled panel and when the wax penetrates the black and white image the light areas turn transparent and you can see the wood below. The color images are opaque. The top coat of wax is brushed to resemble a linen texture. Available in multiple sizes, each are made to order and are one of a kind.
