Encaustic on board, made to look like the cover of a battered book. Includes mixed media of wax, resin, image, stencil, letters, and alcohol ink. Peeking through the image of the vintage ship are words.
Encaustic comes from the Greek word "enkaustikos" which means "to burn (in)" and is an ancient form of art. Each melted wax layer is mixed with resin for strength and body. An encaustic art piece is made up of many layers and uses clear wax or natural wax (which has a warm yellow tint) and wax paint which also includes resin.. Special brushes are needed. The surface of the finished piece is either smooth or textured.
