I’m really enjoying the process of these beeswax paintings.
It doesn’t compare with the ‘traditional' encaustic paintings, in that the layers are not fused together, but glued with gel medium and painted. It’s only the last layer of the painting which is sealed with beeswax.
Either way, I love the process, and enjoy not having to breathe the encaustic fumes, nor having to start of new inventory of encaustic products. Here are my latest creations. Of course, there’d had to be a ‘steampunk’, since I delight in t he theme. This one measures 9.5 x 13.5 on hardboard. For some reason, beeswax and steampunk seems made for each other. Great combination.
