I’ve been experimenting with encaustics in the studio the past couple days. Here is the first print! It is roughly four layers. Encaustic paints are compromised of beeswax, pigment, and usually Damar resin. Several of these colors, I actually made myself without the resin. There are also hints of color that were added with crayons. Then I touched it up with a bit of black pencil to give the flowers, leaves, and stems some definition.
