Organic encaustics

Apart from sketching daily I also keep working at my encaustic project. I call it ‘organic’ because I’m using mainly natural materials such as cotton, beeswax, pigments, parts of plants, seeds, beans, chickpeas… etc

For this work  I first made a base from hardened cotton:

Then I waxed it, adding colour pigments. To see appear the textures is very exciting, difficult to control but that’s what I like about it . It still needs a ‘finishing touch’ but I leave it to dry & harden for a while now.. :
