This painting is an experiment if "encaustic painting" ~ It is my first one and the look I was trying to create was a feeling of antiquity. Encaustic painting of many of you know is an ancient technique that was first used over 2500 years ago ~ In Egypt, they would use wax to paint the face of the person buried in the mummy and thus it is not a new technique. More recently in the 1960's Jasper Johns was and still is a noted "encaustic painter" ~ Not only can one paint scenes; one can also include in mixed media and wax in "objects" of choice.

Exploring and play with art ~ fun! fun! fun! ~ also can be dangerous using hot tools!
