I've added a new encaustic painting to my shop. This painting is painted on a vintage map. The translucency of the white encaustic paint creates a wonderful cloud like look.
When the encaustic paint cooled I rubbed a brown oil paint on the surface. With this technique, I can show the fantastic textures encaustic paint can create.
Here is another vintage map encaustic painting. Unlike the first painting, I did not rub the oil paint on to the surface.This is also a nice look, a little softer and rather ethereal.
