Waxed lyrical!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A day was spent with Deni, Robyn & Dorothy with Deni teaching the creation of encaustic wax pieces of art.

Oil paints were mixed with beeswax which was brushed onto our canvas.  Enhanced with impressions from lace, stencils and all sorts of objects to create texture.

This was an enjoyable time of exploration, a process that was very evolving with no particular structure being applied.

I am curious about how these will “weather” the weather, so to speak.

I am worried that the last of our summer heat may cause the whole piece to melt away before one’s eyes…to end up on the floor instead of the wall.  If you have had experience with this process I would really like to hear your comments.

    Pamela, these are beautiful. Looks like you had a lot of fun. I am sure they won’t melt.
