This lovely angel offers inspiration and creativity to the artist in your life. Inspiring to draw, 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 6 inches wide. Steel wire has been hand-bent into the angel shape, after which the colored wire and the mini-pencil was added. Following that, light green onion paper was attached to the back with encaustic medium. It comes with a white satin ribbonÂ for hanging.
I can create angels with names or other words in decorative wire as well.
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
