Shellac burn


This is the result of my first experiment with burning shellac into encaustic. An exciting experience. Safety measures required! The shellac is being mixed with alcohol, you apply it on the desired spots of your painting and then lighten it with a match. Immediately it starts burning. Fascinating textures are being developed.
