Encaustic experiment



The base is made from an old shirt, I gave it some shape with the help of Powertex, after hardening I applied hot wax, pigments, oil paint and rose stems. I need to make better photos, it will look better on a white background….


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.
