encaustic class

this weeks class was great!
things just went my way
i was inspired by a painting i saw on the weekend
and decided to do something similar in wax
it came out better than expected
last week i made this background with gold leaf, wax
and then crackled it with shellac and a blow torch
i was struggling with what to do with it and
with the help of my class mate, ludgera,
i finished it off with a photo transfer of a picture
from the distillery district
some upholstery tacks, an old key and metal strip
i'm happy with the results
thanks ludgera for all your help
and inspiration
it's wonderful having you in the class!

Those are both really great. I especially like the first one. It reminds me of my grandmother who was a nature lover and a lover of art.

Oh Nancy, both these are fabulous. I especially like the first one with the silhouetted trees and soft, warm colours. What a gal you are!

Oh the distillery brickwork on your previous background is fabulous! That is such a cool technique with the shellac.
