Original photo is a photoshop image of flowers composited with shadows. Image was glued to a board then covered with encaustic wax.  Afterwards dental tools etched the top flower which was then painted with metallic oil sticks.  A dark oil stick was used around the outside edges to darkent the texture that was brushed on with additional wax to add depth.


  1. FYI: Although this was composited in Photoshop, it can also be done by printing the separate images - preferably on rice paper and compositing the images on the board. Make sure to put wax between the images
