Will this angel be your Valentine? I had some tissue paper with the sweet read hearts in my stash so I wire-wrapped an angel with a spiraled heart.Â Then I dipped the tissue paper in a beeswax and resin mixture and adhered it to the steel wire. This angel comes with a redÂ satin ribbonÂ for hanging. It measures 3 1/2 inches tallÂ by 4Â 3/4 inches wide and Â 1/2 inch deep.
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.Â Hanging the ornament in the window may cause fading over time.
