Isn’t this a brilliant beauty? This lovely angel adds a pop of color and sparkle to your life with her vibrant presence. Steel wire wasÂ hand-bent into the angel shape. Handmade fuchsia and gold-leaf paper was dipped into 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 3/8 inches tall by 4Â inches wide.
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
