In response to the election, I started to make a bunch of Rainbow angels. This cutie has narrow rainbow stripes and blueÂ wings to send love out in the world. It can be hung in the home year-round or on a holiday tree in December.
Steel wire has been hand-bent into the angel and heartÂ shape, after which hand-colored tissueÂ paper was attached with encaustic medium. It comes with a silverÂ satin ribbonÂ for hanging. This angel measures 3Â 1/2 by 3 3/4 inches. Different color options are available. Please allow 3 weeks for a custom order.
Encaustics should be cared for as you would for any fine art piece. Encaustic derives from the word â€˜burn inâ€™ 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.
Be gentle if handling the ornament inÂ extreme heat or cold. It is best to let the piece acclimate to room temperature. Hanging it in direct sunlight may cause some fading over time.Â
