I found these vintage labels in a thrift store and garage sale. Knew instantly they needed to go into encaustic work!! I hope you like.
Introducing the Label Series!
In this piece not only did I use the vintage gum labels but I also use a label from a vintage spool of thread for the center.
This piece is my favorite. I used Adeeb's stamps he made in his printing class to print on the computer printer labels.
In this piece I drew and painted on the labels.

I've been working on getting encaustic pieces done for my new shop and a art show in November. It has been a joy to work everyday making art, I could definitely get use to this!
I've also been experimenting with many different encaustic techniques to build my skill...so much to learn! In the two peices above I have used an intarisa technique, burned in fabric, a lace placemat, transfered a graphite drawing, painted with oil, gouche and oil pastels! I think this is why I love working with bees wax, it allows me to use so many different mediums in many different ways.
