Encaustic Sample

This is my encaustic sample. I was playing around with colour and decided to etch in the saying "like a cheap hotel with no ballroom" in the wax. This was a saying that seemed to come up in conversation a couple of times during the weekend (all in reference to tight pants). Gotta love the juxtaposition of a cheesy saying combined with an old worn look of an outside building. Hmmm. This sample is definitely open to interpretation but also very much influenced by the weird, funky and bizarre combinations of new and old collage/graffitti that I admired in Kennsington Market.

Anyway, I would highly recommend experimenting with this technique if you have ever been intrigued by the meer thoughts of the encaustic process.
