This encaustic 3D, table top art piece is unique (just like you), earth friendly, and gorgeous from any angle. 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. For this piece, shellac was applied over the wax and burned off with the torch.
The background of this piece is smooth, while the blobs of color are textured. The live edge bark still has moss on it! This piece is irregularly shaped and measures approximately 5 inches tall, 13 inches wide, and 0.25 inches deep.
The wood used in this piece was salvaged from a local wood worker. 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.
