An Encaustic a Day Keeps the Boredom Away…

Today’s encaustic is a painting of a mountain scene that I did on regular cardstock…I know, I said glossy was better, but regular is what I had.  There was no image stamping with this one, I covered the entire piece with clear wax and painted with the colored wax using the wax tool, first the triangular iron end to spread the base colors and then the stylus end to put in the detail.  Once completed, I mounted it to an ivory card base.
