Encaustic art ROCKS!

I recently took an encaustic art class. This was the first collage piece made. It is themed after the girlie 'laundry day" painting I've been working on. I have plans for this encaustic medium. Big plans.

A random grouping of textiles, melted pine resin & beeswax. What a day!! A heat gun was involved for fusing the layers of textiles and wax. String, how I love the string! Something so simple yet so perfectly swirly. I love a good swirl.
