Encaustic and Handmade Paper
Thought to post some of my latest works. I am loving encasing cast handmade paper in encaustic wax. Some can be left very translucent so as to still see the beautiful fibers, others can become a substrate for a thicker resilient coating that can be worked into.
I also love to layer very thin layers of drawn upon mulberry bark paper counting on the encaustic medium to make the paper translucent and offer a depth to the 2d image...it is wonderful to start bringing my two worlds together!
