Wish a bride and groom well with this white wedding angel.
Steel wire wasÂ hand-bent into the angel shape, along with 2 rings in the form of an infinity shape. Then a metal and crystal flower shape was attached to the rings. White tissue paper was dipped in encaustic medium and then attached to the wire with the resin and beeswax mixture. The angelÂ comes with a silverÂ satin ribbonÂ for hanging. This angel measures 3 inches tall by 4Â inches wide and 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.
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
