Waxy buildup

Encaustictest2Here is another experiment from the encaustic workshop. This is on a gessoed 10 x 10 x1" panel and has layers of thick and thin papers embedded in the encaustic medium. In some cases the wax actual pooled into the pattern of a lace-like paper. I liked how the wax dripped over the edges and some of the process revealed itself.Encausticdetail2
