This angel holds the world in its hands to send peace and love out to everyone.
Steel wire has been hand-bent into an angel with a spiral wrapped around the globe bead. The 14 mm bead is made from a resin or paper mache and twists to show tiny continents. I took baby blue handmade paper and dipped it in encaustic, a beeswax and resin mixture. The warm paper was then adhered to the wire with an iron to create a lovely translucent angel perfect for hanging around the house. It comes with a silver satin ribbon for hanging. This angel measures 3 1/3 inches tall by 3 3/4 inches wide and 7/8 inch deep.
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.
