Trying my hand at encaustic painting. What fun! Encaustic is a method of painting with hot beeswax. Encaustic paintings are usually, but not always done in collage style. This collage features a spooky halloween trick or treater photo with antique cotton netting, a golden moth cocoon and random scrapes and shapes. All topped with darn brown, touches of black and a splash of white oil sticks. Each layer is heat fused. Watch for more!
