This is one of the small peices.

With encaustics, working on color, contrast of surfaces and how light plays on the surfaces is vital.

Wax has a beautiful sheen and allows transparency with certain media.

Another wonderful thing is that at any moment, by adding sufficient heat, anything can happen and just as you can make things work, you can lose it all, too. It’s very immediate and keeps you wary!
