The FRENCH Lesson

I've added a couple of new mixed media encaustic paintings to my shop this week. 
 These paintings incorporate clear encaustic beeswax and pages from a vintage French/English dictionary.
 When the hot melted beeswax is painted on the vintage dictionary page, it makes the paper rather translucent allowing the text from the other side to show through.
  I really like this effect and I think it gives the painting a wonderful look.


  1. ~these are beautiful...i l♥ve the simplicity and can't seem to get enough of bird images...maybe its the yearning for spring and summer days...warmth and life blossoming...brightest blessings~
