en·caus·tic [en-kaw-stik] : a paint made from pigment mixed with melted beeswax and resin and after application fixed by heat; also : the method involving the use of encaustic or a work produced by this method
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Encaustic paintings. They are just tricky to do since you can not lie them down on front to finish the backs since they are wax! But I have found the perfect solution that seems to work with all the Encaustic paintings that have come in…floater frames. These frames do not sit or touch the front of the paints at all. They are available in many decorative styles today as well as simple woods, gilt surfaces, and a combo of the two.
And two thumbs up to Cheryl Cost-Price, the artist of this wonderful piece. She made nine paintings and we framed them as one. Enjoy!
