This lovely angel offers sparkle and sass to the person who adopts it. Made from tissue paper enhanced by sparkly confetti, the wax and wire angel can be hung as an ornament on a door, in a window, or as a holiday decoration. This hand made steel wire angel measures 4 inches tall by 4 1/2Â inches wide. Steel wire has been hand-bent into the angel shape, after which the confetti tissueÂ paper was attached to the back with encaustic medium. It comes with a white satin ribbonÂ for hanging.
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
