Wax on Wednesdays Happy 2016!

Happy 2016 to Everyone !

I love watching the wax move and create it's magic !
This week a little shellac burn, but instead of using the torch , I use the heat gun for a slightly different effect. It is exciting  to explore the effects and changes that occur in the wax with just the slightest manipulation of tools . 
 Tools Used this week:
6x6x2" cradled wood panel
R and F encaustic medium
oil paints
amber shellac
india ink
heat gun
