Detail of Icarus Was Too Big for His Britches.
You can see an example of the texture in the finished project in this photograph.
One of the reasons I am so attracted to encaustic work is the insane impulse I have to touch the art after it is finished! While this project was not truly encaustic, I did play with beeswax and sealing wax. If you are interested in doing it, what ever you do, do not expect the detail of your painting or drawing come out clear and vivid. The wax does a lot of interesting stuff to the stuff beneath it.
