This encaustic wall art is unique and earth friendly! Encaustic is a wax-based paint made of beeswax, resin, and pigment. It is applied while in a molten state onto the wood and fused with a torch.
This piece is textured where the image of the sun is created and the background is smooth. This piece is irregularly shaped and measures approximately 4.5 inches tall, 9 inches wide, and 6.25 inches deep. Saw tooth hanger on the back for easy hanging. This piece could also be set on a table top and it would stand up on its own. Yellow lichen is present on the bark.
The wood used in this piece was salvaged from a local wood turner. The wood substrate has been reinforced with wood glue which creates a glossy finish on the bark.
Care of encaustic art:
Gently wipe every 3 months with a soft cotton cloth to dust and restore shine. Do not place in direct sunlight or store in extremely hot (hot car) or cold temperatures (garage in winter). Do not place it outside.
