Additional Information

‘Coastal Fragments III’ is an encaustic mixed media work. This ancient process of painting dates back to biblical times. Natural bees wax is melted over a low heat adding castor wax to produce a honey like substance, coloured pigments are then added to the molten wax and brushed or poured over a prepared substrate. In this case birch ply. After applying each layer of colour/line or collage the image is fused with a heat torch. This produces a beautiful transluscent surface which can be buffed to a high glossy sheen. This sheen can dull over time, however, the surface can be restored quickly by buffing it to a high gloss using a soft, lint free cloth. Encaustic paintings do not need to be varnished or protected by glass. However, this work has been placed in a shadow box frame which can be removed if preferred.
