encaustic, charcoal and hand-made paper (just barely peeking thru)
I started this piece in June at the encaustic workshop I took and just felt it needed a little more. I did some scraping to even out a few lines then added more charcoal around the edges. Then I hit it with my crème brûlée torch (again, buying tools and not using them as intended) to smooth out the marks from scraping and blend in the charcoal.
Now that I look at it, the differences are minute. But important. At least to me. ;-p
same piece before I finished it today - can you see any difference?
