On one of our biking trips, we found some old rusty screws which brought me back to our days in Africa. We ran an antique shop there ( there we called it a collectables shop, sense you didn't say" antique" unless it was over a 100 years old, here the term is used more liberally). Behind the antique shop was our workshop, where the oak and oregon pine furniture was restored. I loved the rusty bits and pieces that naturally collect there and often ended up in the shop for sale.

Needless to say we brought home the rusty screws that day and I've had them in a jar until recently.
Eager to try an encaustic technique I pulled the screws out of the jar and started making rust prints and haven't stop yet. I believe I have started a rust farm :-)

Below are some of the finished encaustic pieces , they are available in my Etsy shop!
