Give your Valentine your heart in the form of this gentle pendant.
I hand-colored pink artisan paper with rainbow pastels. Then I wrapped steel wire into a heart shape. The paper was dipped into encaustic medium (a resin and beeswax mixture) and then adhered to the wire.
This pendant measures 1 3/4 inches long by 2 7/8 inches wide. The pendant comes with a black satin cord.
Encaustics should be cared for as you would for any fine art piece. Encaustic derives from the word “burn in” and is a process of applying molten wax colors to a surface for the creation of images or decoration that began more than 2 millennia ago with Roman Egyptian wax portraits.
