encaustic class

it's been 5 weeks since my last encaustic class

(i took this last semester off )


i gives you lots of time to get something finished

(or close to it) after choosing the rusted lock and key

heather suggest i work with beeswax

i used 4 boards, 2 upside down

and different thickness




here i add a piece of lace i found at the flea market




one of my photos some coffee and sesame seeds to add some texture

and some handmade paper to line the canvas


old paper for the background and oil paint to highlight the texture

I would love to know how you pack for class? All these items seem so unrelated and yet they look FABULOUS in your creation. BRAVO

Awesome pieces Nancy! That bag must be darned heavy! xo

Such a well composed and cool looking piece. I love your encaustic work.

You have such a gift with locks and keys. Today I wore my key necklace I bought from you a year ago and if anything I love it even more than I did then.
