I painted this lavender, abstract, floral on artist carton with molten, pigmented beeswax medium in the encaustic technique using an electric tacking iron, my hot air blower and my fingers - then I mounted it on a 12x12in gallery wrapped canvas - it is ready to enjoy - can you smell the lavender beeswax???
the painting is signed on the back - an acrylic finish has been applied to protect from dust, scratches and UV - it comes ready to hang or can be framed if desired -
Encaustic is the oldest painting technique dating back to Roman, Greek and Egyptian times -
The encaustic medium consisted of beeswax and resin, pigments from the earth and was melted by fire and the sun -
