Photo-Encaustic: The Fortune Teller
From the Night Circus collection.
The majority of the image cones from the magical Musée Mécanique in San Francisco.
Photo-encaustics are a perfect fusion of my photography and quest for a singular work of art. Each piece is unique and can never be recreated.
Photo-encaustics feature a real photograph which is transferred and fused into layers of wax on a thick wood surface using a blow torch. The effect is a ghostly, antique feel.
Encaustics are extremely archival, and will preserve an image as long as the work is care for properly. The subtle changes in the layers of wax over a piece, the bubble holes, and overall aesthetic lend to its unique, eternal feel.
On these thicker pieces, I have infused wax around the entire edge of the piece as well.

1 -- 8x8 encaustic artwork: They come unframed, wired, and should be set in a frame without glass, or you can hang it directly on the wall. Signed.
