Painting Large

"Forgotten Oaths"  48"x72"

My largest encaustic to date. It took 2 pounds of wax just to get a base coat on it. There were at least 4 more pounds of various colored wax applied before it was finished. One thing you can't do with large work that you can do with the small pieces is have the entire surface molten at the same time. I had to learn to work in 18" square sections at a time.
