This piece I created for one of my Hero’s, Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish Diplomat and
Humanitarian. I started by painting the cradled birch panel with Black paint. Then I drew
hundreds of tears using NeoColors ( Beeswax crayons from Switzerland ). Then layers of
Encaustic medium ( 8 parts beeswax, 2 parts damar crystal). Scraping the painting and
sculpted Petals to hold the Tears. Sculpted tiny handles out of the scrapings to hold my hair
beaded with real Moonstone Teardrops.
This piece is multiple layers of the bio luminescent pigments painted, gently fused (no torch,
just small heat gun). Then I had slivers from previous paintings saved that I loved. They are the
small shapes with black lines. I just pushed them on warm from my hand. And added a few
crystals. This one glows in the dark.
This piece has around 12-15 Layers on a Cradled Birch Panel. Each layer a transparent
different color of Encaustic (Molten Beeswax) pigmented with bioluminescent pigments. Then
many layers of pressed flowers in between layers of wax. Then added Swarovski Crystals to
embellish. It glows in the dark.
This piece is created using watercolor paper that I had in a Waterbath using Sennilier Shellac
based inks to achieve deep color. I then tore the paper and glued to a cradled panel and did an
Encaustic painting on top. Lots of fusing on this one to get the melted sky. This one is my
favorite. Its a combo imaginary earth from above Ireland.
