I was looking at other people’s work and found some amazing encaustics. All I know about encaustic is that is uses wax applied to paper, canvas or some other carrying substrate. The results are luminous is ways I can’t begin to describe. I like the idea of it, but really fiber is my medium. So I thought about how I might adapt the images I liked best from Daniella Woolf’s Nature Trouve online images. I tried to get the feeling of lightness and airiness. I can’t link directly to the images I want you to see – you’ll have to go there and look under Artwork.

These three are backgrounds, I am working on one more but it is making my brain hurt. They get beads and handwork next, and then come kind of connecting framework.


I found this on Elizabeth Bear's blog:
