My first "fling" with encaustics. This encaustic collage was soooo much fun. A word of advise...wear summer clothes! Standing over a griddle is, uh, VERY warm indeed. Was very proud that I didn't burn myself. I learned a lot and have a lot to learn... but for my first...I thought I did pretty good. The main thing for me is that it was fun. Excited about "dipping"in again very soon.
