These satisfyingly chunky mini abstract artworks are a great way to start an encaustic collection!
They have been created from layers and layers of beeswax which has been melted together with tree resin onto a solid beech cradled board.
Once this has hardened the piece is then covered with layers of shellac resin which is set on fire with a blow torch to create the unique surface of each piece. Finally tiny flecks of real gold leaf are applied for a bit of sparkle.
They can be freestanding or wall hung.
The edges of the board have been finished with a Japanese technique called shou sugi ban which involves charring the wood with a blowtorch before cleaning and waxing. This brings out the beautiful grain of the wood.
Please note that each piece of encaustic artwork is unique and cannot be replicated. Also take into consideration that colours will vary from monitor to monitor and photographs are as a guide only and are not to scale.
Encaustic work gets better as the wax cures and hardens and the colours will change slightly as this happens.
Measurements: 4" x 4" x 2"
Materials: encaustic medium (beeswax and tree resin), gold leaf, shellac, wood
Encaustic medium is an age old art form dating back to the ancient Egyptians. It is a mixture of beeswax and tree resin which is melted together before being applied to a porous surface in thin layers. As the medium cures the piece will acquire a white bloom which can easily be removed by polishing gently with a soft, lint free
