I found these resin flowers at a bead show and couldn’t resist putting one on an angel. I wrapped 16-gauge steel wire into the angel shape along with a swirl to attach the lightblue flower to. Â Then I dipped the blue tissue paper in a beeswax and resin mixture and adhered it to the steel wire. This angel comes with a white satin ribbonÂ for hanging. It measures 3 1/4 inches tallÂ by 3 3/4 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.Â Hanging the ornament in the window may cause fading over time.
